Training Guidance

Raisers must transport their dog to the regional facility they are turning in to. They are able to put their dog in a blue matriculation vest with their medal and take photos. They also have the opportunity to speak with their dog's trainer. 

Raisers get monthly updates when the dog is in formal training.
