The Seeing Eye
Experience first-hand what it's like to train Seeing Eye dogs in one of the most challenging environments ... New York City!
In the morning, meet at the Morristown, NJ, campus with a training manager to tour the facility, meet the team of instructors, and watch dogs being loaded in vans for the trip to the city. Ride along with the manager, when you'll have plenty of time to ask questions and learn about the training process.
Once in the city, you'll follow different instructors as they work with their dogs, have lunch, then continue to observe dogs being trained to work through crowds, heavy traffic, subways, escalators, etc.
Before heading back to campus, you'll have a chance to experience what it's like to work with a guide dog while under blindfold.
Finally, you'll receive a gift bag filled with Seeing Eye merchandise.
This experience is for two people, and the minimum age is 15.
