Puppy Raisers

Students selected as Puppy Raisers work closely with FCI Instructors to perfect puppy manners and expose them to a variety of environments for at least a year before the puppies are mature enough to enter advanced assistance-dog training.  Through this unique service role, students demonstrate increased responsibility and gain mentoring opportunities to teach younger students and peers. Learning FCI’s positive reinforcement training methods are a life skill with applications far beyond dog training.
