Current Puppy Raisers


Our Canine Development Department

Our Canine Development Department works with our puppies from when they are just babies until they enter formal training. From an early age, they are observing and assesing the young puppies to make sure they are meeting our strict benchmarks along the way.

The Team conducts group classes throughout southern California, and can often be seen out in the community- meeting puppy raisers to support the development of our future guide and service dogs. Our Canine Development Team works closely with the Puppy Department- together they create a valuable resource for our puppy raisers.
