Volunteer Puppy Raisers are the foundation of Canine Support Teams. The Puppy Raiser prepares puppies to become future Service Dogs by establishing positive experiences during early learning. Becoming a Puppy Raiser involves three major areas of personal and financial responsibility in caring for the wellbeing of the puppy.

  • A safe environment
  • Food for puppy
  • Healthcare- Rabies vaccination, spay/neuter at 6 months of age (or when requested by an instructor), and other incidental healthcare requirements.

Participation and communication:

  • Raisers must attend a minimum of 2 group training classes per month at our Murrieta facility
  • Raisers must attend a minimum of 6 public outings as a group per year
  • Raisers must communicate training progress and immediately report any issues you may be having during the raising process.

Socialization: Expose the dog to age-appropriate social situations. Raisers agree to ensure the dog is acting appropriately and practicing safe handling in public.

Requirements: Volunteer puppy raisers must commit to the outlined responsibilities. They must house and care for the puppy until the required turn-in date (about 1.5 years). Raisers must be willing and able to devote time each today to oversee the complete care of the puppy; feeding, grooming, socialization, and exercise as recommended by Canine Support Teams.

Training: Puppy Classes are offered through Canine Support Teams at our Murrieta Facility.
