It's a big and exciting day when our puppies are ready to leave their mothers and begin their year with their adoptive families! By the age of 8 weeks they have already been exposed to various stimuli, walked on different surfaces and stairs, and begun to explore the world. Now they are ready to begin learning the skills that will prepare them to be guide dogs in the future. Many of them will be raised by university students at various academic institutions, where they will learn to sit quietly in class.
Last Friday puppies were distributed to their adoptive families at a special event on campus. Before they left, some of our older, more experienced dogs showed these little puppies how it's done!
Good luck to puppies and families, and we hope to see all these puppies as full-fledged guide dogs in two years!
