While many assistance dog training programs use host families for their dogs, ours is one of the few that involve puppy raisers in both the early and advanced phases of the dog’s training. When puppy raisers need some time off, our "puppy sitters" take over. Both puppy raisers and puppy sitters may have children and other pets in their homes. Puppy sitters care for our dogs in their homes on weekends or during vacations when the dog's raiser needs time off. The puppy sitter is responsible for driving the puppy to and from school on regular school days. The puppy sitter is also responsible for ensuring the safety of the dog during its stay with them and following the program's guidelines for care and feeding. These guidelines are provided to the sitter in advance of their first assignment.
