Description

The Seeing Eye was founded in 1929 with the purpose of helping blind persons achieve independence and mobility through the use of properly trained guide dogs. The Seeing Eye teaches dogs to guide blind persons, breeds and raises dogs for this purpose, teaches instructors the science and techniques of training dogs as guides, instructs blind persons in the proper use and handling of the dogs, and informs the public about the role of guide dogs and the capabilities of blind persons. The Seeing Eye maintains a training center in Morristown, New Jersey. Information on the training program and applications for dogs are available on request.
