Raising puppies for
Guide Dogs for the Blind

DrinksLocated in Bend, Oregon, we are a puppy raising club for the Guide Dogs for the Blind. We receive the puppies when they are about 2 months old and return them to Guide Dogs when they are between 12 and 18 months old.

Training and Socialization of the Dogs

The puppies will be with a raiser at all times, going to work, shopping, and events.

Returning the dog to Guide Dogs for the Blind for professional training

Sure it's hard to give back the dog that you have raised since it was a puppy, but the proudest moment of the raiser is knowing that their puppy is going to change a person's life. The graduate places their life in the dog's hands, creating a intimate collaboration of trust and confidence.
