On this episode of the Seeing Eye Dogs Show, we have a number of different voices chatting with us.
- Hailey Lindermann Seeing Eye Dogs handler of Tippi joins us talking about her Seeing Eye Dog Tippi and their life together. She talks about the impact of having a Seeing Eye Dog and her story, as well as why she is supporting the Seeing Eye Dogs Petbarn Foundation appeal this year. To support the appeal, head to a Petbarn or City Farmers store in July to make a donation, buy a Petbarn Foundation hedgehog from your local Greencross vet, or head to their website at petbarn.com.au/seda.
- Harriet talks puppy placement and matching processes with a few members of Team Seeing Eye Dogs Laura King Puppy Development Operations Officer, Vanessa Godfrey Puppy Development Trainer and Jacob Brown Senior Puppy Centre Attendant. We talk about how puppies are matched to their carer homes, and the factors that help make those placements to set the puppies up for success. We discuss how temperament is evaluated, and carers' lifestyles and environment are taken into consideration to help each puppy grow and thrive to hopefully become a Seeing Eye Dog.

We are looking for puppy carers now so if you're keen to raise a puppy to hopefully become a Seeing Eye Dog we'd like to hear from you! It's an incredibly rewarding experience, with training provided. Carers need time, patience and love to give to a puppy, so if you want to commit to a year of puppy raising, we would love your help. Get in touch to find out about volunteering with us or apply now via our website.
