PALMETTO (FOX 13) - Southeastern Guide Dogs needs a few good puppy-raisers.
Puppy-raisers are the folks who welcome 8- to 10-week-old puppies in to their homes and spend the next year and a half exposing them to pretty much everything.
They’re expected to take the dogs shopping, out to eat, to theme parks. Plus they take part in obedience and other classes -- all to get that dog ready for its next step to eventually become a service dog.
