The Seeing Eye
Looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience for yourself or as a gift? Get a truly unique inside look at the place where life begins for a Seeing Eye dog -- a place that very few people besides employees have ever toured: the world-famous guide dog school's breeding facility!
Located in Chester, NJ, about 12 miles from the main campus of The Seeing Eye, the breeding facility is the birthplace of about 500 puppies each year. The ingenious design of the station ensures that puppies and parents are stress-free, fit, and well-prepared for their future careers.
The day begins with a private tour (for two) at the main campus in Morristown, complete with lunch with staff in the school's dining room. Next you'll be driven to the breeding station where you will receive a complete tour led by Dr. Dolores Holle, Attending Veterinarian and Director of Canine Medicine and Surgery. This, of course, will include some play-time with puppies in the special playroom designed to introduce pups to the sounds, textures and experiences of the world they soon will encounter.
And be sure to decide which puppies most pull at your heartstrings, because you will have the chance to be photographed with one or more of these very special canines! You will also receive an additional gift of a tote bag of Seeing Eye merchandise.
Participants must be 15 years or older.
