University Raisers

Since 2011, New Horizons Service Dogs, Inc. has been proud to partner with Stetson University in DeLand, FL and Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, FL.

Stetson University allows students studying and living on their campus to be Puppy-Raisers.  Puppies are placed at 8 weeks old with two students that share responsibility for training and socializing the puppy until it is between 4 and 6 months old.

Palm Beach Atlantic University students participate in our Weekend Raising program.  The students take our Prison Pups on weekends for a mini-vacation.  But it is not all fun and games, the students must agree to also provide the dogs with additional socialization and practice of their commands.
