Any Advice Taking Care of Guide Dogs?

The BBB family is seriously considering becoming a foster family for dogs undergoing training as guide dogs. This is a new program administered by The Canadian Guide Dogs For The Blind
. Anyone have any experience at this? (more inside).

Basically, the program has been developed to provide foster families for guide dogs that are still undergoing training, but are beyond the puppy stage (and are no longer in the "puppy walking" program). Instead of having the dogs housed in kennels at night or on weekends, we will pick them up and take care of them overnight and on weekends.
We went to an information session, so are aware of the particular needs of a guide dog, and what we will need to do.
Just want to know if anyone else has had any experience with a similar type of program, and can provide any advice or comments on their experience.
