A Seeing Eye Dogs journey to success

Breeding and health: The dogs with the highest quality health and temperament are selected to produce the future generations of Seeing Eye Dogs. The Seeing Eye Dogs Vet team maintain and monitor the health of the pups and dogs throughout their development.

Puppy Development: The pups spend the first eight weeks of their lives in the puppy centre. Then, volunteer carers will raise
them for the next 12 months under the guidance of a Puppy Development Trainer.

Training: After reaching approximately 12 months of age, dogs undertake an advanced training program lasting approximately five months. This rigorous training ensures the dogs can safely guide their future partners.

Matching: Instructors work closely with clients on the waiting list in order to match the right dog with the right person. Instructors stay in regular contact with clients so they can continue working safely and successfully with their dog.

Retirement: A Seeing Eye Dog’s average working life is eight years. Before a dog’s retirement, our team supports the client to plan their next steps.
