dedication & love
that goes into being a guide dog
puppy raiser was abundantly evident . . .
“as a professional pet photographer these are the kinds of strong images that evoke something in me . . .
these precious moments are what I live for . . .
the gentle touch, the mutual respect, the emotion, the level of trust . . .
the unconditional love,
it’s all here . . .
the enduring bond that forms between a dog and their human is . . . heartwarming.” ~ James
the class 🙂
this class was a farewell to the 3 puppies that were graduating,
heading off to Vancouver the very next morning and
beginning their advanced professional canine training program!
“Puppy Raising is a 24 hour a day, 7 days per week, volunteer job. It is unlike any other form of volunteering. Puppies begin living with volunteers at about 7 weeks old until they are ready for advanced training at about 15 months of age.” ~ BC & AB Guide Dog Services ~ Raise a Puppy page
