Fostering a Courage Service Dog in training is fun, rewarding and never boring!
Participating fosters in Minnesota will enjoy the experience of confidently and positively affecting the lives of others through assisting with puppy training.
Puppies will be rotated between foster families every 2-3 months. This prevents the puppy and foster families from attaching to each other in an unhealthy manner. It also allows for socialization and desensitization of the puppies to a larger variety of experiences. This is essential to the development & training of a quality service dog.
The puppies in our program are English Labs and are acquired from Welcome Home Labs, a breeder located in Bruno, Minnesota. English Labs are believed to be the most successful service dogs for those with PTSD. All puppies are temperament tested by a professional trainer and then released to our foster homes.
