About

Hello! If you would love to dogsit for service dogs-in-training in San Diego County, Next Step Service Dogs would love to meet you!

While our dogs are in training, we need periodically need dogsitters and foster care for young service dogs in training --most of them are young adults and partially trained, and ALL of them are wonderful. Because our dogs live with trainers and later with veterans in training, dogsitters may be needed when the trainer is on a trip, the client is ill, or an emergency arises. A basic dog training phase 1 class is provided so that there are no surprises!

Most of our dogs are labrador retrievers; then we have a few standard poodles, a few golden retrievers, a handful of labradoodles.

The dogs are amazing and the trainers are inspiring - consider joining our team! See www.nextstepservicedogs.org.
