The puppies are around 3-5 months when we receive them and we foster/co-handle them for 1-2 semesters.
 
Our biggest part as fosters and co-handlers is the socializing which is to make sure they are being introduced to as many new and different environments as possible.
 
The dogs are allowed anywhere with you: the mall, class, work (where food isn't prepared), restaurants, movie theaters, and any other place you can think of. 
 
We have been the 3rd college campus to bring this wonderful opportunity to our campus here at WSU.
 
There are a number of jobs that a service dog can be trained for at 4 Paws, those are:
Autism-Assistance
Mobility Assistance
Seizure Assistance
Autism Assistance
Hearing Alert
Multipurpose Assistance
FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder) Assistance
Diabetic/Medical Alert
Veterans Assistance

If you are interested in fostering or co-handling all you need to do is go to our "4 Paws WSU Handler Application" here on Orgsync! :)
