Black_Yellow_Lab_PuppiesThe Center is slated to open on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 on the University of Pennsylvania’s Grey’s Ferry campus in Philadelphia.

In preparation, we are searching for puppies to enroll in our Puppy Foundation training program opening this Fall.  We are interested in puppies with a lineage of titles in hunt or success in search and detection certifications.  This survey will help identify if one of the puppies you have breed would be a good fit with this program.

All of our dogs will live with a foster family, not in a kennel, and will receive excellent veterinary care through the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine for the duration of their time in our program.  All training conducted will employ positive reinforcement methods.  All dogs will be tracked throughout their career as our ultimate goal is advancing the health and wellness of our canine detectors.

By completing this application you are not committing to participating in the program and Penn Vet is not committing to your puppy’s inclusion. We are interested in ascertaining if there is a good potential fit.   If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Griffith, Assistant Director, griff@vet.upenn.edu or 215-898-2211.
