When our pups are 8-9 weeks old, they’re ready for their first road trip. They say goodbye to their birthplace, our California campus, and embark on the first leg of their journey toward becoming Guide Dogs. They are loaded up in our “puppy truck” which is specially designed with their safety and comfort in mind. The truck makes dozens of trips throughout the year, and is driven by our own staff “puppy storks,” who delivers the special cargo to the arms of eagerly waiting volunteer puppy raisers.
