We would like for our logo to reference: 1) stars (or a star) and stripes, the flag, or veterans; 2) education (an ionic column, a scroll or diploma, maybe? Not a pencil or anything that looks elementary - maybe a graduation cap?); 3) our motto, "never alone"; and 4) a golden retriever (head or body, or two golden retrievers)
What we do is very different. No one else uses high school students to train dogs for other schools as a means of reducing school violence. No one else uses high school students to train dogs to donate to the VA.
We do not want- to look like everyone else; no paw print; no cartoon-looking dog.
We like the idea of a shield, crest or seal, but we are afraid it may be too busy. We are not set on a specific shape, but the logo will be made into a patch for the dogs' vests.
Obviously, we suck (see images) and we need some help. ;D
