The Seeing Eye is the oldest guide dog school in the world. Since 1929, The Seeing Eye has partnered with people who are blind by assisting them in enhancing their independence, dignity and self-confidence through the use of Seeing Eye® dogs. Twelve times a year, as many as 24 students at a time visit the Morristown, N.J. campus to discover the exhilarating experience of traveling with a Seeing Eye® dog. More than 15,500 specially bred and trained dogs have brought a new level of mobility, safety, and self-sufficiency to more than 8,000 men and women throughout the United States and Canada.
Our students – people who are blind or visually impaired – come from all over the United States and Canada to spend up to a month training with a new Seeing Eye® dog. They range in age from 16 to senior citizens, their home environments may be rural or urban, and they may be homemakers, volunteers, or judges. But they all have this in common: They are motivated by a sense of independence and armed with the knowledge that Seeing Eye® dogs will provide an extra edge to attain success, however they may choose to define it.
