Amanda Solak is raising her puppy Ralph to do some very important work.
“My greatest dream would be for him to be a guide dog,” said Solak. “That is the end game.”
Solak is helping him get there as his volunteer puppy raiser.
“When I saw my first puppy raiser I thought that is the luckiest person I’ve ever seen in my life,” she said.
That means she trains him on basic skills and makes certain he has great house manners. Solak does it all through ‘ Guiding Eyes for the Blind ‘
“Raising a guiding eyes puppy is very very fulfilling, but its also a commitment,” said Theresa Camloh.
Camloh has worked for ‘ Guiding Eyes for the Blind ‘ for 13 years and she’s raised six puppies. She says each puppy raiser gets some initial training then brings their dogs to class once a week to keep them on track.
