Puppy raisers are the backbone of our guide dog program. They give 12 to 15 months of their time, energy and love to raise a puppy for Leader Dog. Through daily care and training, puppy raisers build the foundation our puppies need to become a trusted guide dog for someone who is blind. You don’t need any previous experience raising a puppy to become a puppy raiser. We’ll help you every step of the way.
