Raisers complete an exit interview and fill out a dog biography form detailing their puppy's skills and quirks. Puppy raisers always have at least on month of notice before their dog is called back for training/rotations and are able to reach out to Topaz at any time for updates.


Graduation is held each December, raisers are invited to see their puppies graduate and are able to meet their clients! Raisers are given contact to their puppy's clients.


Topaz Assistance Dogs is a small program that offers a comprehensive approach to puppy raising; working closely with Trainers, learning aspects of disability support, and more advanced dog behavior & training skills.
