Top 10 Dog Questions For Puppy Raisers

I was reading another puppy raiser blog years ago and I came across an article about t-shirts with the answers to some very common puppy raiser guide dog questions that I hear on a daily basis.  I went back to Google the other night and did my best to look up the same blog post, but unfortunately could not find the original.

I did however come across another blog: Failures of a Puppy Raiser that had a similar t-shirt with the “Answers”.  Basically a shirt that listed common service/guide dog questions answered by a puppy raiser.  If you’re a guide dog puppy raiser (or a puppy raiser of any kind) then I think you’ll appreciate this post.

Dublin had the answers to all the puppy dog questions!

Great T-Shirt!!!  Although the “Answers” would be slightly different for me and my guide dog group, I’d love to print up a similar T-Shirt to present the answers to these common guide dog questions for puppy raisers.

I’ve never made a t-shirt in the past, but I’ve heard it’s not to difficult to create a shirt using either Zazzle or CafePress.  Here’s what I think I’d do for our guide dog puppy group:

Maybe I can come up with a more general list of Puppy Raiser answers that would apply to all puppy raisers, print up the shirts, and sell them online so I can make another donation to our guide dog group.  What do you think?  Would you buy a shirt with the “answers” to common dog questions asked of us puppy raisers?  What “Answers” to service/guide dog questions would you have on your Puppy Raiser T-Shirt?

I think I might put together a mockup of a T-Shirt with “The Answers” to common dog questions for puppy raisers…If I do I’ll share in an upcoming blog post.

  1. @Angel, some people are great about asking before petting others…not so much. I think a shirt would be kind of cool to answer some of the most common questions people ask us puppy raisers. I’m sure you get similar questions about Volt.

  2. I was thinking about a shirt just the other day! I battle terribly with people actually calling Volt to come to them (in public) before I have a chance to settle him!
