Raise a service dog for a veteran

Raise a service dog for a veteran

 

This notice was provided by Kentlands resident Samantha Hines.

 

I volunteer for a nonprofit service dog organization called Warrior Canine Connection, which is located near the South Germantown Soccerplex in Montgomery County. I wanted to let you know that we’re currently looking for qualified puppy raisers who are willing to give back to Veterans with disabilities by raising an assistance dog. We rely on the help and support of these volunteer puppy “parents” to fulfill our mission of providing highly trained service dogs for our nation’s heroes.

Puppy parents provide loving homes, training, and exposure to the public for Golden and Labrador Retriever puppies starting from approximately eight weeks of age through 2 years of age. Qualified individuals or families must be willing to:

Provide a stable, safe, consistent, and loving environment.

Supervise the growing puppy throughout the day, teaching manners and basic commands.

Provide exposure to different environments throughout your community.

Attend weekly training classes in Boyds, Maryland and in public settings.

If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, we are holding a one-hour informational session at our Healing Quarters on August 14th, 6pm – 7pm.  At the meeting, we’ll introduce you to some existing members of our puppy parent community, review the details of the program, and provide next steps. If you would like to attend, please register here:  http://signup.com/go/rZdKeMq 

Healing Quarters address:  14934 Schaeffer Rd. Boyds, MD  20841

Registration is limited. We hope to see you there!
