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.
Our puppies in training are raised in permanent foster homes. After approximately two years of training, the adult dog will begin their work as one of our team dogs. The service dog will continue to live with the same foster family during their working life. Upon retirement, the pup will enjoy a life of leisure in the same home they have grown to love.
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.
