Mission Statement

Our Mission is to Provide Service Dog Education to Help People with Disabilities Live More Independent and Fulfilling Lives. Tax ID #47-2288228


Service dogs do amazing things to improve the lives of the persons they are assisting. In recent years, the numbers of people using service dogs and the number of services that dogs provide has rapidly expanded. The likelihood of coming in contact with a working service dog team is growing, yet the general public has little appreciation of these wonderful animals, their jobs, or how to interact with the people who use them. Moreover, the demand for an increased number of service dogs trained to help people with disabilities grows. Consequently we have made it our mission is to aid this challenge. We also aim to provide a higher level of understanding about service dog law, service dog etiquette, and service dog puppy raising to help the service dog industry reach a higher level of consciousness.

GUGP is a lovely, passionate organization. I would highly recommend volunteering here if you are looking to work with excited, motivated and enthusiastic people!

Service dogs are specially trained to help people with disabilities. The mission of the org is to provide education on service dogs. The organization does this by breeding & raising service dogs, documenting the process and sharing the content on a regular basis. The organization is going through a re-boot in its team, processes and projects. So, exciting time to be a part of the team to re-build.

I am currently volunteering as a Board Member at Growing up Guide pup. I have learnt so much about service dog culture and importance of this ecosystem to our society. The founders are really creative and fun to work with. They have been doing an incredible job with service dog educational content creation and delivery through website and multiple social media platforms. Highly recommend the organization to anybody interested in learning and contributing towards a worthy mission.

Matt and Amie are very nice people who deserve your time and effort! There are a variety of ways you can volunteer with Growing Up Guide Pup, mine was through video editing. It was a perfect balance between them telling me what they want, while also allowing me some creative leeway.
