K9 Medical Detection NZ Charitable Trust (K9MD) trains dogs for the early non-invasive detection of cancer and other diseases. Our high drive working dogs train in our facilities at AgResearch Invermay, Mosgiel, Dunedin.
Once our puppies grow and commence formal training, dogs are either collected or dropped off to our training centre each morning and return home late afternoon during the week. Our dogs are valuable and are working to save lives, hence we have strict guidelines on their care.
We believe in creating the perfect work/life balance for our dogs and are seeking fosterers to join the K9MD family and care for our dogs in their home overnight and in the weekends. You do not need to “give up” the puppy at a certain age. When the dogs retire from their working life the fosterers have the option to take over ownership.
We are currently seeking experienced dog owners. We have a new puppy arriving in 2021 and are looking for that special person who stays at home and has the time to safely introduce puppy to the world, socialise, learn basic obedience and work closely with K9MD’s Senior Canine Trainer as puppy will commence their scent detection training early.
If you are interested, have a secure property and believe you can work within our criteria we would love to hear from you. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
