Guide dogs need puppy educaters, people who care for them with advise from the relevant organisation. Food, bedding etc. is provided.
Basically all costs are covered. You have to walk them every day, and train them in the methods provided. They are toilet trained prior to educators receiving them. One I know goes to the office with its educater quite often. You have them for approx 12 months before they are handed back to be trained to the next stage. If they fail to reach the standard required for a guide dog, they may become therapy dogs. One became a therapy dog at a nursing home, another a therapy dog for yars 11 - 12 at a school for disabled students. Reply
