To support the puppy raisers, Guide Dogs for the Blind offers a comprehensive puppy raising manual, organized training and socialization through meetings with other local puppy raising clubs, as well as staff that offer training and problem solving for the pups and their raisers. People interested in Puppy Raising should attend the workshop or contact the Puppy Raising department at Guide for the Blind.
