Tri-Valley Guide Dog Puppy Raisers

 

Tri-Valley Guide Dog Puppy Raising Club is made up of volunteer guide dog puppy raisers in the East Bay of Northern California. We are the raisers of guide dog puppies bred by Guide Dogs for the Blind in San Rafael, California. We are part of the mission to give people with severe visual disabilities an independant lifestyle and safe mobility. puppytruck2012

 

Our club operates in the Pleasanton area and meets weekly on Tuesday nights at 7pm to socialize our puppies and work on training and obedience exercises.

 

We are always looking for volunteers interested in becoming puppy raisers and puppy sitters. Join us for one of our meetings or outings in the East Bay to find out more about what we do - and also meet our growing puppies.

Please contact us for more information or take a look at pictures of our guide dog puppies to see active puppies in training.

AMICI_OCT_2011_hEvery August, our group hosts our main fundraising event, The Pooch Parade , held in conjunction with the Pleasanton Downtown Association's First Wednesday Street Party. This is a great time for dog lovers from the Tri-Valley area and beyond to dress up their favorite pooch (and the pooch's master!) and join us in a parade through historic downtown Pleasanton. This has become quite a spectacular event, growing better each year.

NEW CATEGORY THIS YEAR!!
This year non-dog owners and youth may enter their favorite plush pooch in the parade. Dress up your favorite plush pooch and bring it along for the fun.
$10 fee per category. 
      This is a non-competitive category ~ everyone is a winner. 
We look forward to seeing you at the Pooch Parade.
No need to preregister - just print off and complete the entry form at home, and when you arrive at the event, proceed directly to the registration table where you pay your registration fee ($10 per category),  turn in your completed form, along with picking up your entry # and your free gift.
All dogs walking in the parade must be registered for the event, have an entry # and pay their $10 fee.
 
Then proceed directly to the judges table, where the fun begins! 
Judging is optional, but if you don't enter, you can't win any of the fabulous prizes!!


We hope you enjoy our website and all the information about Guide Dogs and the Tri-Valley Guide Dog Puppy Raisers. Perhaps some day you will join us and raise a Guide Dog Puppy of your own!
