Only guide dogs that graduate from The Seeing Eye in Morristown New Jersey actually earn the title of seeing eye dog. It’s an exhaustive four-month multi-step training process for 18-month-old German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers to convert them into helpful companions for the visually impaired. If you’ve ever seen these amazing dogs at work you know just how smart and obedient (or “intelligently disobedient”) they are. The Seeing Eye website offers some very interesting facts about the dogs and the training they undertake to pursue their 7 to 8 year career as a professional guide dog.
