We foster and socialize puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. The puppies are bred and born in San Rafael, California. When they are eight weeks old, they go to their foster homes in California, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado. Raisers refer to this as "puppy truck day."

These puppies are currently active in the puppy raising program. They will stay in their raiser's home 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 all sorts of situations. Raisers will socialize the puppies in as many different situations as possible in order to prepare them to be guide dog candidates.
