Breeder Caretaker

How it works

Breeder caretakers open their heart and home to a purpose-bred dog from Dogs for Better Lives’ breeding program. Enjoy the companionship of a well-mannered Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, or a cross of the two and help bring future generations of assistance dogs into the world to one day change someone’s life.

As a caretaker, you will assist in whelping puppies and play a large role in raising and socializing puppies until they are old enough to transition into their raiser homes. When breeder dogs are ready to retire, they are spayed or neutered and most are adopted by their breeder caretaker family.

We are now accepting Breeder Caretakers from all across the United States, except Alaska and Hawaii!
