The Seeing Eye and Puppy Raising
The Seeing Eye enhances the independence, dignity, and self-confidence of blind people through the use of Seeing Eye® dogs.
The Seeing Eye is located in Morristown, NJ.
Breeds and trains
German Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, and Lab-Golden Crosses.
The Seeing Eye will also occasionally use
Poodles.12 times per year a group of up to 24 blind students train with their new Seeing Eye® dogs at the Morristown campus. It costs $150 for a person’s first Seeing Eye® dog and $50 for each dog thereafter.Slide6

Why we’re different
The puppies we are raising have a unique job ahead of them. Some fundamental parts of that job set it apart from most dog training.
Our dogs need to be eager to pull out in front of their handlers and
lead on the left side
; they should not be content to follow!
Our dogs must be confident enough to
disobey a command that can lead to a dangerous situation. This is called intelligent disobedience.
The basis of other types of training is “command and obey” with guide dog training, the basis is “command and obey if it’s OK.”
This is the difference between training a dog and
Our Puppies can go to:
Our Puppies can NOT go to:
Retail Stores (with permission)
. permission)All university buildings
Approved housing on campus
And much more!
**consult the puppy exposure guidelines and raiser before any new experience.
Inside grocery stores
On Amusement park rides
On escalators, moving sidewalks, or in revolving doors
Lab classrooms where there could be harmful chemicals
If denied access
Say “Thank You” and go somewhere else.
Remember our puppies
have the right to be there. It is the disabled person, who has the right to take their service dog (ADA).Slide13
General Outing Tips
Stress travels down the leash
Puppy dragging you?
STOP and SIT, change direction, or do a recall. Get the focus back on you, and
himPuppy barking? Give a verbal “quiet,” do simple obedience, get focus on you and praise. Ex. Whining in classWatch for alert ears! Give the verbal “quiet” before the sound comes outSlide14
General Outing Tips
puppies before going into buildings and
ALWAYS pick up
(don’t throw poop away inside or near an entrance)
Make sure your puppy is tucked and
out of the way. Don’t stop and chat in front of doors. Know where his head is.“Three Second Rule”Yes, he can be petted. Make sure he is under control – all four paws on the floor or in a sitThe puppy can great other dogs, but ASK the handler firstSlide15
