UK sight loss charity launches call for Guide Dog Puppy Raisers

Becoming a Puppy Raiser (previously known as Puppy Walker) is all about preparing a puppy with the virtual foundation needed to be a guide dog. 

Your role will include looking after a puppy for 12-16 months where you will take them through training, socialisation, and the introduction to new environments and experiences.

All while providing the fluffy pup with a loving home. 

What a Guide Dog Puppy Raiser does

Your role will include engaging with the charity's world-class Puppy Raising for Excellent Partnerships (PREP) training programme.

You will also be required to care for and support your puppy at home including all of the grooming, feeding and loving that comes with the territory.

Socialising your puppy and introducing them to a variety of environments in order to increase confidence as well as gradually teaching your puppy to be comfortable alone for short periods.

The role also means taking your puppy to monthly classes where you will get the chance to interact with other Puppy Raisers in your community whilst refreshing your own training and sharing tips with others.

You will also frequently meet your volunteer manager so that you can discuss any changes or issues with your puppy.

  • Someone at home who is physically able to handle large breed dogs (around 25-40kg).
  • Access to a car, so that you can get your puppy used to travelling.
  • The agreement of your landlord to have a dog in the property if you rent your home. 
  • A safe secure area outside for your puppy to go to the toilet.
