Tender Loving Canines Assistance Dogs (TLCAD)
Solana Beach, CA (San Diego)
TLCAD trains and places service dogs in San Diego county to individuals with limited abilities. They focus currently on two specific areas: the Leash on Life Program, developed to assist children and families impacted by autism; and the At Ease Program, created to serve the needs of Wounded Warriors. In both programs, they conduct extensive one-on-one training in a wide variety of settings with the client, rather than at a campus. All trainers are volunteers.
