Title- Puppy Raiser

Mission- Your Service Dog Inc is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by teaching them how to train a Service Dog Partner to perform to the dog’s full potential, by providing superior canine assistance. We also seek to assist Service Dog handlers by helping them attain their full human potential through utilizing canine assistance.


Purpose- Puppy Raisers assist the organization by helping disabled people obtain a free, partially-trained service dog. Not only do Puppy Raisers help disabled people, they can also be instrumental in providing a shelter and rescue dog with a second chance, a purpose, and a home.


Responsibilities-The Puppy Raisers will assume responsibility for the complete care of the puppy or dog with the assistance of qualified Service Dog. Trainers will learn how to train the puppy or dog by attending the online Prospect Evaluation course at Your Service Dog School; so, a stable internet connection is essential.


The "Lelah Sullivan Method of Training(tm)" will be used to train the dog. The initial training can last for four to six months, depending on the progress of the service dog. The Puppy Raiser will need to work in collaboration with the Trainers at Your Service Dog School, and they will monitor the progress of the Service Dog and keep day-to-day records of the dog's progress.


Needed skills- Love of dogs, compassion, critical thinking, patience, responsible dog handler, communication, ability to listen and accept instruction, detail-oriented, problem-solving, and ability to video record training sessions.
