Weekend Puppy Raiser
Thank you for your interest in being a Puppy Parent for one of our future service dogs. Puppy Parents need to teach the dog to live as part of a family. Taking the dog with you when you go out will ensure it receives necessary socialization and exposure to different sights, sounds, smells, surfaces and situations. Puppy Parenting also requires attending Puppy Raiser meetings and outings, filling out monthly reports, reinforcing the dog's learning, and keeping the dog healthy and safe. Your role in parenting a New Life K9s dog is a crucial part of our mission — "Saving Lives through the Healing Power of the Human-Canine Bond." (Please note that this volunteer opportunity is a long term commitment, typically at least 2 years.)
