The future of our guide dog program depends in large part on volunteers who host specially selected breeding dogs. This dedicated group of volunteers provides foster homes for breeding stock moms and dads for the life of these dogs. Leader Dog provides veterinary care, as well as heartworm and flea preventative treatments. The host family is responsible for all costs related to routine care, feeding and transporting the dog to our campus in Rochester Hills, Michigan. Families hosting a female dog are also responsible for the care and whelping of puppies for the first seven weeks of life.
