Help Us Continue Raising Awareness on Service Dogs

Growing Up Guide Pup empowers volunteerism and disability advocacy through service dog edutainment. Your contribution to our trip to the Vancouver Webfest will allow us to bring 2 Board Members with their own personal Assistance Dogs to provide education by example, demonstration, and public interaction.
Growing Up Guide Pup
Growing Up Guide Pup is a 501(c)3 Public Charity Organization located in Silicon Valley. It is also the only organization that specializes in service dog education in the world, using new media and modern technology.

Five years ago Amie and Matt observed that despite dozens of service dog schools in existence, something was missing that no organization has made their focus. What is missing is education that bridges the gap between the service dog world and the average person who knows nothing about the topic.

Growing Up Guide Pup (GUGP) speaks directly to this void. Service dog schools have their hands full with their primary missions of breeding, training, and pairing up service dog teams. Therefore GUGP goals are:

1) Provide education and understanding to the general public, so people are familiar with services that service dogs provide, and how to behave when near a working service dog team.
2) Spotlight service dogs, service dog users, and service dog training organizations
3) Advocate for service dog users, raising awareness about issues including access and what rights are granted by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
4) The benefits of and how others can get involved in the joy of raising service dogs.

Our mission is to answer these questions with Growing Up Guide Pup, using ‘edutainment’. In order to be most effective, GUGP needs to develop the means to inspire the largest audience possible. Although service dogs may be considered a niche topic, we look at this quote for inspiration and strategy; “I would rather have entertained and hope I educated than educate and hope I entertained.” Walt Disney

The non-profit currently is producing a web series documenting the lives of Amie and Matt Chapman, a mid thirties married couple who are raising their 15th Guide Dog pup. Amie and Matt use the series to defend the rights of the handicapped, as well as to promote a philanthropic desire to give back to the community.
