Thank you Rob for sharing. As a guide dog puppy raiser it is heartwarming to learn the process from puppy to partner. Good to hear CNIB will eventually start their own breeding program. I encounter trainers working with the puppies in Carleton Place and it is a joy to watch. Puppy Raisers are not always privy to the dogs’ progress once the pups go into formal training and onto being placed. You certainly have chosen the perfect career for paying it forward. Your passion is contagious.
