Guide dog puppies need foster homes

The role of the “puppy raiser” is to socialize and teach the dog basic skills and obedience

B.C. Guide Dog Services is looking for volunteers in the Greater Victoria area to help train puppies to aid blind people and children with autism.

The role of the “puppy raiser” is to socialize and teach the dog basic skills and obedience.

The dog will stay with the volunteer for about a year.

“Puppy raisers need to be able to bring the dog pretty much wherever they go, so the role is really best suited for retirees or at-home workers,” said Linda Thornton, puppy manager.

The charity provides ongoing training and covers all vet and dog food costs.
