Why wouldn't we print the truth on this list. As far as the negativity goes,
graduates approached us with concerns, we did not single out Fidelco. So
far you are the only one w we have heard from who has given positive
feedback about the school. Oh as far as being embarrassed, I have total
confidence in our leadership and I know for a fact that the NAGDU board of
directors are unbiased towards any guide dog program. However, at the same
time, if graduates come to us with concerns and or evidence of misconduct on
behalf of a school, we will investigate the claims.

I was just recently placed with my second Fidelco dog. I am very happy
with the dogs and the service that I have received from Fidelco.
There are a few people who have a negative opinion about Fidelco on this
list. I encourage you to take a look at the facts. The people who have
complained about Fidelco have remained anonymous and none of the allegations
have been proven or substantiated.
I feel that when the truth of these matters eventually comes to the surface
you will probably not hear about it on this list. Many people will be
embarrassed and the faith that current NAGDU members have in their
leadership will be unforgettably shaken.
I am a strong supporter of Fidelco and what the organization stands for.
