From Advocacy at Seeing Eye – a Survey About Guide Dogs and Public Access – Open to All Guide Dog Handlers No Matter what School You Received Your Training From – Please Share Far and Wide #Accessibility, #Blindness, #GuideDogs

Hello everyone.

The following is something I feel strongly we as guide dog handlers should participate in.

See below for more.

Dear Seeing Eye graduate:

Please feel free to forward this message to any guide dog user you think might be interested.

Calling all guide dog users who live in the U.S. or Canada or spend time there while working their dogs!

The Seeing Eye is conducting an online survey to learn more about the public access barriers guide dog users are facing as they go about their daily lives working their dogs and the impact those barriers are having on guide dog teams. Are you currently working with a dog or waiting for your next dog? Do you live in the U.S. or Canada or do you travel there with your dog? If so, then this survey is for you and we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to complete the survey regardless of where your dog was trained. Also, if you are blind or low vision and have decided not to work with a dog, you have the opportunity to tell us why. The information you provide will help us improve our advocacy and education efforts. Thank you for taking the time to share this information with us. The survey will close at midnight on November 30, 2023. Please go to the below link to access the survey:

He wears a brown leather harness with a handle attached to the back and is smiling at the camera as he sits in front of Patty.
