    WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads OGreat Students) is the safe school initiative of the National Center for Fathering that involves fathers and father figures to help create a more safe and secure learning environment in our nation's schools.

    Who are WatchDOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day each year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.

    School administrators and dads both agree WATCH D.O.G.S .® is a winner!

    • 79% of principals surveyed strongly agreed or agreed that "The WATCH D.O.G.S. ® program has made a significant contribution to the safety of our school."
    • 96% of dads who completed our End-of-Day Survey strongly agreed or agreed that their "experience as a WatchDOGS volunteer was rewarding" and they would "want to do something like this again."
