We need you! Become a BRAVEHOUND Dog Sitter

valued role

The BRAVEHOUND dog sitter is a valued role.
You may not have time for a regular commitment to supporting BRAVEHOUND but, by dog sitting a BRAVEHOUND dog for anything from a day to a week or sometimes longer, you will be playing a crucial role
Our volunteers provide a vital role in helping BRAVEHOUND deliver a service to veterans in Scotland. Dog sitters are essential to ensure that our BRAVEHOUND dogs are cared for 365 days a year.

Transform a life

Our veterans often say that their own BRAVEHOUND saved their life, gives them a reason to get up in the morning and gets them out and about. Our BRAVEHOUND dog sitters help to make that happen by providing care for BRAVEHOUND dogs when needed

As a BRAVEHOUND dog sitter you will provide care for our BRAVEHOUND Dog on a short term basis, whilst the veteran or regular carer is away and cannot have the BRAVEHOUND with them. BRAVEHOUND will carry out a home visit to ensure that your environment is suitable for this role.


You will be given all the equipment and food required for their stay with you. You will be supported at the handover and throughout the stay as required.
In the handover you will receive a handover document outlining feeding, exercise and the cues that the dog is used to.


The trainer will demonstrate and go over the handover information so that you have all the tools required to look after the welfare of the dog.

On occasion you may be asked if you are available with little notice if there is an emergency requirement for care, such as a hospital admission.
