Adopt a dog - Class of 2018
Our Carroll College student handlers work and live with each adoptable dog during the school year. They serve as foster caregivers for shelter dogs while they train in one of several disciplines such as service, narcotics detection, and search and rescue. Each dog was chosen from and belongs to a regional shelter.
The dogs are selected based on their personalities, capacities to learn their particular discipline, and their handlers interests. Some dogs are high-drive and energetic, others are calmer and a bit less active, most are both depending on the moment.
Though they have been trained in a particular area, they can be adopted as pet/family dogs. However, if a dog has been trained in a discipline and her new owner values that training, that is an ideal outcome.
The curriculum within Anthrozoology canine coursework teaches students how to train their dogs, then convey them to an appropriate new owner. Part of that process involves writing a biography of the dog, and screening potential adopters. Students interview potential adoptive people and families during the spring semester. Canine Graduation is in late April or early May. The students convey their partner dogs to their new family during the ceremony.
- Some dogs already have an adoptive family ready to receive them when the semester concludes.
- All of the dogs belong to their respective regional shelter. Potential owners will go through the adoption process in place at each of those shelters.
