On this episode of the Seeing Eye Dogs Show Harriet is joined by three guests.
Puppy Development Trainers Jack Lord and Lina Xi join us talking about their training in the puppy development diploma, what they've learnt and some highlights and challenges of the role.
Then Catherine Kennedy from People2People Recruitment joins us talking about the OZTOPDOG Competition and the benefits of having dogs in the workplace. OZTOPDOG Competition is a competition for dogs with jobs or dogs who attend offices, rewarding those 'good boys' for their great work. If you have a Seeing Eye Dog or puppy, or bring your dog into the office, why not enter them in the competition for a chance to have your efforts recognised and even win some fun dog prizes!
Then we play a snippet of an older interview with Seeing Eye Dogs handler Peter Frank talking about his story and life with Seeing Eye Dog Anya. Peter and Anya's story is available to listen in full on our OMNY.FM.. The team were recently featured in the Petbarn Foundation Seeing Eye Dogs appeal for 2023. We want to also thank everyone who supported the appeal which raised $1.35 million over the month of July 2023.

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.
