Guys, it's legit. We're for real.
"hey let's really do this...but let's call it TUPAC"
So that's really how it started. A dozen crazy ideas - but the really important part was we call it TUPAC. And here we are. Just two nerds with a soft spot for gangster rap and dogs.
Who we are & what we do
We've had a lot of ideas over the past 20 years, but this may be our best yet. "How do we get a dog in the office" transformed over several months into a full-fledged operation.
We've expanded services to include private detection services for parents who believe their child may be using drugs, combined with our family education program to help parents and caregivers recognize the signs of substance use, prevention strategies, and linkages to resources in their community.
We've both been dog lovers all our lives - we've had certified therapy dogs and wanted to incorporate not only a detection dog into our program, but also a way to use dogs to aid in the healing and therapeutic process. Adding an animal-assisted therapy component was a no brainer.
