Guiding Eyes for the Blind Puppy Raising
The SUNY Delhi Vet Sci program partners with Guiding Eyes for the Blind to raise puppies to become guide dogs.
"The relationship and bond between the raiser and pup will become the foundation for all the life lessons a guide dog needs to master. Raisers provide hours of patient teaching and numerous socialization journeys over a 12 to 16 month period, before they return a well-socialized young adult dog to Guiding Eyes training staff.
All of the raiser's hard work culminates when a blind person receives their priceless gift - a guide dog providing independence, companionship, and mobility."
