Puppy Raisers Wanted
Raising a puppy dog can be a very rewarding experience.
What a great additional sense of accomplishment and satisfaction you
can obtain when you foster a dog that is special enough to enter the
training process to become a Service Dog.
Not only will you help with the nurturing and basic training of the
Service Dog, but you can also work along side the selected individual to
whom your Foster Buddy will be going to, should you want to continue
to be a part of the final process. The dog you will be fostering for the
program will complete basic training such as heel, sit, stay, and
recall. Once the basics are mastered, the dog will move on to specialized
training to meet the needs of its chosen owner.
So, if you can spare a little room in your home and have some extra love
to share with an animal that can learn to dramatically enhance another
person's life, please take the time to consider being a puppy raiser Family
