Ten years ago, Brittney Clark watched as her sister Te’a received Babette, her assistance dog from Canine Companions. She knew in that moment she wanted to give back to the organization that had blessed her sister with her new best friend, and she became a volunteer puppy raiser.

When Babette retired in 2020, Te’a began her journey to receive her successor dog. She needed a dog who was smart, strong, and able to take her into the next chapter of her life. As fate would have it, Argos, the fourth dog raised by Brittney, was in professional training and was looking for his partner too.

During Team Training the trainers knew that Argos was the best match for Te’a because his strong work ethic and gentle nature perfectly complimented her desire for greater independence. “It’s great to have him home with us and there’s no telling what we will accomplish in the future together,” said Te’a. Whether he is picking up a dropped object or going with her on walks, he’s always there for her.

“I was fortunate to see intimately how these dogs change a person’s life. What I didn’t realize was how much they could change my life when I become a puppy raiser,” said Brittney. “I continue to raise because of Te’a and Babette.”

Brittney’s puppy raising journey has been very successful. All four of the dogs she has raised found their perfect match.
