Turn in is very situation dependent depending on your location within the US and proximity to our facility/training locations. Typically the puppy raiser coordinator flies to you to pick up your pup. You can expect monthly updates from the trainer and some trainers are on social media. These processes may change frequently due to the nature of operating as a small organization.
There is frequently a graduation ceremony and raisers are invited. Contact is given on the basis of if the handler would like it.
We are a small organization and offer a lot of support to our raisers since we have a smaller program.
To gather the most up to date and accurate information about an organization it is best to contact them directly. Pawsible is not partnered with all listed organizations and does not formally endorse every listed organization.
