Behind every Service Dog is a caring puppy raiser who gives love, time and resources so that a person who is physically and mentally challenged can know the freedom of independence. The training and care of these pups is of the utmost importance in helping to shape them into gentle, willing and extremely well adjusted Service Dogs that can go any place at any time.
The job of puppy raiser is to provide a stable and loving home where the puppy will be introduced into multiple situations, lifestyles, and events, all while working on training at the same time. This is done from 8 weeks of age until approximately 15 months old. At this time the puppy/dog must be returned to NHADI to receive their advanced training. It will not be easy when the pup leaves you after its stay, the sadness will be replaced by the joy of helping a young child, Veteran or adult in need.
Fosters will be required to attend our training classes, this allows us to evaluate how the puppy is progressing and allow the trainers to provide techniques to help with training. You will teach basic obedience as well as other more advanced commands during you time with the puppy outside of the training classes.
