Puppy Fosterers play a vital role in the early socialisation and training of a future Assistance Dog. We would place an 8 week old puppy with you till they are 10 months old or if you prefer an older puppy they would be from 10 months to 15 months old.
You will care for the puppy with support from our Puppy Supervisor who will teach you the fundamentals of puppy socialisation and simple commands to begin the puppy’s training. You will be preparing the puppy with the skills needed to become a well-rounded dog that will go on to transform the life of a child with autism.
Being a puppy fosterer is a big commitment and can be challenging but is rewarding and fun and offers you the chance to learn new skills and meet other foster families.
We cover all costs, food, vet bills etc. and provide all the equipment you will need.
