Individuals or families care for an adult breeder dog in their home. They provide a safe and loving home where the dog will maintain housebreaking, obedience, excellent house manners, and maintain the dog in proper body condition. Veterinary care is provided by the Foundation, and caretakers are responsible for the cost of food, treats, bedding and any other creature comforts.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a litter of future guide or service dog puppies born and raised in your home? Can you commit to 6 weeks of care to a litter of puppies and their mom? Do you live within a one-hour drive of the Foundation? If so, please consider volunteering to be a litter host for the Guide Dog Foundation.
This is a specialized home that hosts breeding dogs for a short period of time. Breeder sitters may not have the time to commit to housing a breeder long-term, but still want to be involved in the breeding program. Breeder sitters will attend orientation and can attend breeder obedience classes as an observer to learn some of the things the breeding dogs are working on with their caretakers. Sitters will be given all the necessary supplies & special instructions (if required) needed to care for the breeding dog.
