Vision Australia - Seeing Eye Dogs - Various Casey locations, VIC
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION
The Seeing Eye Dogs - Puppy Caring program needs volunteers to care for a puppy in their home from the age of 8 weeks, until they are approximately 12-15 months of age.
Carers teach, under the guidance of a puppy development officer, basic obedience, house manners, eating and toileting on command, socialisation in many different places (restaurants, cinemas, cafes, shopping centres, supermarkets etc) and to walk on lead in a relaxed manner.
Carers are visited regularly at home by their puppy development officer to provide guidance in training and caring for their puppy. SEDA holds a training day that the carer and puppy are required to attend to once a month.
Puppy caring is a very rewarding experience and our organisation couldn’t run without volunteers that participate in this program.
