Puppy host

Our puppy host families are an invaluable part of our work in training service dogs

 



If you are good at working with dogs and would like to help to build up a future assistance dog, the role of puppy host may be for you. If you work the dog should not be left alone for more than 5 hours a day.

You must have a lot of spare time in your daily life to take care of the dog. As a puppy host, it's your job to make sure that the dog is friendly and well behaved. Feed and veterinary costs are covered by STH to the extent made possible by sponsors. The puppy will establish a strong tie to people, and is your task to give the puppy many good everyday experiences.


You must attend puppy motivation courses with the dog. It is preferred that there are no other dogs in the home. If there is a dog it must be min. 1½ years old.
