Did you know that a limited number of lucky students within the Pre-Vet LLC have had the opportunity to assist with the training of service dogs? The FETCH (Fostering Education and Training Canines) program gives four students full responsibility for the care of one service dog for 2-5 months. Their primary responsibility is to help socialize the dog before they go on to their final stage of training. When service dogs arrive, they are fully “vested” and legally required to be treated like a service animal - meaning they can go anywhere you go.
Students who are interested in the FETCH program submit an additional application along with their housing application and go through a selection process. All supplies, food, and veterinary care for the dogs are provided by the program. Participants attend several training sessions while working with their dog and live in a 4-person, 2-bedroom suite with those who they will share responsibility for the dog with. The FETCH program is offered in partnership with the College of Veterinary Medicine, the College of Food, Agriculture, and Nutritional Sciences, Can Do Canines Assistance Dogs Organization, and Housing & Residential Life. Check out the great video below featuring 4 University of Minnesota students and their FETCH program experience!
