Puppy Carer Opportunity in Alaska

Save to Favorites

YOUR SERVICE DOG INC

This is a virtual opportunity and Facebook is required for this opportunity.

Your Service Dog Inc
(nonprofit 501c3) is looking for Puppy Carer/Raisers who will care for a puppy in their own home for a period of time, treating Puppy the same as if he or she was their very own puppy. We sometimes also have older Pups in need of this same service, so we can discuss your preference for the age of dog which you are most comfortable caring for.

Taking care of a puppy will involve a lot of time on your part, for he or she will need to be fed and played with, and given lots of stimulating company and toys, as well as being introduced to animals, people and the routine in your home and the surrounding area during puppy's stay with you

There will also be some training involved (in the form of Learning Games for Puppy, which Your Service Dog Inc will help you with every step of the way, so no worries!) A prepaid Training Course comes with each puppy or dog for all Puppy Carer/ Raisers caring for a canine in our program.

If you live in Alaska and you think that you would like to help by taking care of a puppy or dog in your home for a period of time while he or she is waiting to be placed as a Service Dog Prospect, we would love to hear from you.

Feel free to contact us with any questions which you may have regarding this opportunity.
