We foster and socialize puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. The puppies are bred and born in San Rafael, California. When they are approximately eight weeks old, they go to their foster homes throughout the Western states such as, California, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado.
They will stay in our homes for about a year before being recalled for formal training. While in the raiser's home, the puppy will learn basic obedience, manners, and how to behave in public. Raisers will socialize the puppies in many situations in order to prepare them to be guide dog candidates.
