A benefit of the Service Dog Code is that it will help ensure that member dogs are of the same quality and caliber as any other training school graduate. One of the goals is to have all schools be on the same average training level and to avoid a Harvard of schools, which would unfairly funnel disabled clients to longer waiting lists on the premise that the dog is of a better quality. The code is meant to be a minimum set of standards, members are encouraged to go above and beyond, but not to harm other members by publicly creating an elitiest standard which could undermine local schools who may be better equiped to assist a local disabled. Potential clients should be free to apply to any number of schools and trainers, whether they are members or accedited by any other organization. Remember the common mission of all service dog trainers and organizations is to assist the disabled, which includes referring them to other schools, that may be closer when they can not fulfill their needs or requirements.
