Puppy Raisers

Elite Detection K9


Elite Detection K9 is looking for homes to raise puppies who will become scent detection dogs.

A puppy raised in your home could go on to protect countless lives while giving you peace of mind.

Our Labrador Retriever and German Shepherd puppies need someone to care for them, take them places, and play ball until they are 10-12 months old.

You don't need any previous experience raising a puppy to become a puppy raiser. We'll help you every step of the way.

Elite Detection K9 provides heartworm and flea preventative as well as veterinarian care at our partner veterinarian hospital. To further our mission, puppy raisers generously provide food and toys for the puppy. At time of puppy pick up, EDK9 will provide a "starter kit" with age-appropriate toys.
