Volunteers wanted to raise future assistance dogs! Looking for an exciting volunteer opportunity that will change lives or looking for a school project? Then the Puppy Program might be for you! Puppy raisers help build strong foundations for our puppies in training who will have the potential to become future Assistance Dogs.

Our raisers attend training classes, teach our puppies basic obedience and good manners, provide a safe home setting, and help to expose the puppy to a multitude of different environments, people, surfaces, and other stimuli.

By raising a puppy for Dogs for Better Lives you will become a part of team dedicated to helping others. Changing the life of a family in need to live a more independent lifestyle with the help of the assistance dog you helped raise.

Mission Statement

Dogs for Better Lives' mission is to professionally train dogs to help people and enhance lives while maintaining a lifelong commitment to all dogs we rescue or breed and the people we serve.

Description

Dogs for Better Lives professionally trains dogs to become Hearing Assistance Dogs, Facility Dogs, and Autism Assistance Dogs. We do this at a minimal cost of an application fee to the client.

Dogs for Better Lives travels to the client for an interview. Following the application process the dog is delivered to the client by the Certified Assistance Dog Trainer that trained the dog. The Trainer spends several days supporting the client in their daily activities with their new Assistance dog.

Dogs for Better Lives maintains a lifelong commitment to our clients and dogs!
