“A” Litter Meets Their Volunteer Raisers!

Guide Dogs of America’s volunteer puppy raiser families foster our puppies from the age of 8 weeks until the dogs enter formal guide dog training at around 18 months of age.

Guide Dogs of America’s “A” litter went home with their GDA volunteer puppy raisers on March 3, 2017. The black Labrador Retrievers and yellow Labrador Retrievers are pictured here as a group with their raisers at GDA’s campus.
