Puppy Raising is truly an adventure filled with love, fun, frustration, challenges and most of all opportunity. I have the opportunity to teach a Dog who could truly change someone's life and in return they change mine. I have become a more patient, calm and understanding person and have made some of the most wonderful friendships in the process. Raising multiple Future Leader Dogs takes a special kind of person and the Community Leader Dog has created for Puppy Raisers is filled with support and people I now truly consider family.
As I embarked on a somewhat new career path in March 2016, I was committed to bring in my passion for Dogs into my business. I have been involved with Real Estate (on the mortgage side) since 2003 and was first a licensed Realtor in Tennessee in 2008. I obtained my Real Estate license in April 2016 in Michigan and immediately approached Leader Dog about how I could donate a portion of my earnings.
My goal is to have events benefitting Leader Dogs and supporting other Local Businesses from Restaurants to Retail Locations. This, along with a business strategy of offering discounts to clients selling homes on my Listing Commission when they donate to Leader Dogs will hopefully allow for a partnership helping Leader Dogs, myself and local families. I enjoy supporting other local business owners and non-profit organizations while trying to build my own business in Michigan.
Support Local Events
I do my best to schedule regular Support Local Events benefitting Leader Dogs. If you are interested in hosting a Support Local Event at your Business or if your Company would allow us to host a Fundraiser at their location, please take a look at the possible events below:
Restaurants – Dine with Dogs: pick a day and donate a % of sales for that day. We will bring Puppies and promote the Event to try and draw additional business
Bars – Host a Happy Hour for Hounds – pick a day and do a Happy Hour benefitting Leader Dogs. You can donate a flat amount or a % of Sales. You could also create a specialty cocktail where sales for that item are donated. We bring Pups and promote to draw additional business.
Retail Locations – Host an awareness night. Let us bring Puppies and talk about Leader Dog. The Organization, Guide Dogs, Volunteering and Donating along with plenty of times for questions and answers.
Schools or Sports Organizations – Donation Wars! Host a donation challenge for students. Teams or Classrooms who can raise the most for donation will win a private puppy event where they can meet and learn about Leader Dog.
Company or Corporation Locations – Host a fundraiser, anything from a bake sale to a silent auction. Jeans days are also very popular! If your Company will match what we raise even better! We will bring Puppies to your Event to meet and greet supporters.
Do you have a unique idea? Please contact me!! I love putting together Community Events that help this wonderful Organization.
