Service Puppies on the Moon

3…2…1…Blast off! 

The seven puppies in Susquehanna Service Dogs’ Astronaut Litter have launched their journey to becoming service dogs! SSD Heide Piper (Heide), SSD Wendy Lawrence (Wendy), SSD Suni Williams (Suni), SSD John Glenn (Glenn), SSD Alan Shepard (Shepard), SSD James Lovell (Lovell), and SSD Neil Armstrong (Armstrong) are with their puppy raisers.

Each small step they take brings them closer to becoming service dogs, and they couldn’t reach their destination without their puppy raisers. For 15-18 months, raisers teach their puppy good house manners, proper behavior in public, and 25 different cues. Our raisers give the dogs the solid foundation they need to become working dogs.

Become a puppy raiser today and help a puppy’s small steps become a giant leap for someone’s independence!
