I follow a lot of blogs in my RSS reader and too no surprise one of my feeds are simple images and descriptions of adorable puppies. Every once in a while they (The Daily Puppy) highlights a puppy in training. In this case we are lucky enough to see Puppies In Training.
I’m sure The Daily Puppy receives tens of thousands (if not more) visitors a day some I’m very happy to see they are highlighting a great cause like Canine Companions for Independence (CCI).
Here’s a little excerpt from the The Daily Puppy:
Canine Companions for Independence is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly-trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. Canine Companions assistance dogs are trained in up to 50 commands designed to make everyday life easier for adults and children with physical and developmental disabilities. They open and close doors, retrieve dropped objects, and turn on and off lights.

If you’re interested in becoming a puppy raiser and raising a CCI puppy then visit their website at http://www.cci.org. If you don’t have the time for puppy raising then they offer many other volunteer activities and also accept donations at their website.
Of course my last two puppies, Stetson and Derby were both puppies in training for Guide Dogs of America. If you’re interested in puppy raising for GDA then visit their website at http://www.guidedogsofamerica.com.
