SCOUT'S LEGACY PUPPY RAISERS

Here at Scout's Legacy Service Dogs we are looking to find people who are interested in training and/or raising puppies so that they can grow into life saving service dogs for people with disabilities. Scout's Legacy is all about trying to work with our volunteers so that they have the most positive experience with us. One of the ways we do this is by offering four different options of puppy raising which range from a puppy being with you 1 week occasionally up to 2 years. If you have always wanted to work with animals this is a great step in the door! You must live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in order to be a Puppy Raiser with Scout's Legacy!! You will follow the guidelines set out, work with the president and lead trainer of the company, and have help every step of the way. The dogs needs will be paid for so you will just be volunteering your time, home, and affection to the dog.

Our dogs are trained to the highest quality and we expect them to be mindful and well behaved with whoever their handler may be at any given time. We train our dogs according to the Americans with Disabilities Act which means they are obedience trained, task trained, and public access trained (http://www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm). As a volunteer you would be helping in one or more of these areas of training. If you have the time to put towards one of these animals please let us know by emailing us at info@scoutslegacy.com or just apply!

To APPLY to become one of our puppy raisers please fill out the Puppy Raiser Application by signing up and selecting "Puppy Raiser". If you have any questions feel free to Contact Us.


If you know of anyone who has an interest in working with animals, please send them our way! Scout's Legacy's Facebook

FULL TIME PUPPY RAISERS

Full Time Puppy Raisers are considered a long term commitment with the dog living with you for the amount of time it takes to train them. For most dogs that is between 18 and 24 months. Our Full Time Puppy Raisers work with a puppy from the moment the puppy is enrolled in Scout's Legacy to the time they are given to their handler. There will be intermittent times where your puppy will go to a Co-Puppy raiser to reinforce commands and following commands given by someone else.

Requirements:

  • 18 months - 2 year commitment

  • Attend Monthly Group Outings

  • Train 10-15 minutes 2-3 times daily

  • 1 new socialization item each week

CO-PUPPY RAISERS

Co-Puppy Raisers are puppy raisers who will take a dog for a week at a time to work on reinforcing the dogs training and ability to follow commands given by different handlers. Our Co-Puppy Raisers will have the opportunity to work with different puppies.

Requirements:

  • Attend Monthly Group Outings as often as possible

  • Work on items the puppy has already learned
