Puppy raising is now a big part of who I am. I got into it because I really wanted a dog in my life and lived in a very small condo. My husband and I needed a dog that we didn't need to leave at home, the answer at the time was puppy raising...that was 16 years ago. I fell in love with the process and the friendships we made. I am a better person because of puppy raising. We are on puppy #18 overall but #2 for Brigadoon.
