Yesterday we celebrated the progression of ‘Jeffrey’, ‘Jester’, ‘Kassidy’, ‘Kennedy’, ‘Leroy’, ‘May’, ‘Miller’, ‘Mona’ and ‘Nevada’ into formal Guide Dog training at our Puppy Progression Party!
Denielle was one of the Puppy Raisers recognised on the day for her special contribution to the journey of Guide Dog-in-training ‘May’.
“It’s my first time puppy raising and it’s been an amazing experience,” Denielle said.
“I feel really proud to see ‘May’ entering training and I’m so excited to see how she’s going to go. I hope she’ll be successful in what she’s doing and one day change someone’s life.”
Thank you to all of our wonderful Puppy Raisers for undertaking the incredibly rewarding experience of raising these pups and to our suppawters for helping to make it all possible!
We hold Puppy Progression Parties when our young dogs are ready to leave their Puppy Raiser’s home and return to our breeding and training centre to start their formal training. Here we recognise the hard work and commitment of our Puppy Raisers and pups during their first 15-18 months and thank our valued sponsors who have generously contributed to the journey of these young dogs.
We are always on the lookout for volunteer Puppy Raisers to bring our young pups into their homes and hearts. Click here for more information on becoming a Puppy Raiser.
