Socialization
The most important aspect of puppy raising is socialization! Your work introducing your 4 Paws puppy to new sights, sounds, people and places is critical to their success as a service dog. Your university program contract requires 5 total outings per week. A new experience might mean going to a new place, like a new grocery store, restaurant, museum, or movie theater. It also might mean a new experience, like watching someone use a forklift, hearing an emergency siren, meeting someone wearing a uniform, or meeting a new group of children. Refer to your list of experiences for ideas on new places and things to do with your puppy!

In this section, please list all of the NEW EXPERIENCES your puppy has had this month.

Obedience
Obedience work is a necessary foundation for service dogs, so the work you do as a puppy raiser is very important. Your contract requires you to attend 1 4 Paws Puppy Raiser Class per month. Remember, that daily informal practice is important as well to ensure your puppy is always learning and improving. Additionally, it is important that you practice these skills at home and in public. Tricks are a fun thing to add to your obedience practice time!

House Manners
House manners are really important for your puppy! Toys on the ground, vacuum cleaners, and doorbells are just some things in the daily environment that you can offer to them. Good house manners like greeting people nicely and becoming accustomed to appliances are important to practice so that you puppy will know how to behave well in all environments when they are placed as a service dog! This level of comfort and success is very important to helping your puppy become a service dog.

If you are having trouble helping your puppy learn proper house manners or if you have a concern about a specific behavior, please contact your Puppy Raiser Coordinator:

Care and Grooming
While your puppy is in your care they should remain well groomed. This includes bathing, brushing, and nail care. Most 4 Paws puppies will require regular, moderate grooming throughout their time with you. Doodle and poodle breeds may require more intense grooming care, to include increased brushing or a haircut.

You may bring your pup to 4 Paws and bathe them in the dog baths!

If you think your doodle/poodle needs a haircut please contact Lynn who can assist with 4 Paws policies for grooming appointments.

Please indicate what grooming activities you have performed on your puppy this month:
