The “Ruff” Life Academy-Harness Your Paw-tential (ages 18-24)

March 21, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - March 25, 2022 @ 5:00 pm PDT

 Are you blind or visually impaired, between the ages of 18 & 24, and interested in exploring the option of using a guide dog for mobility? Come and be a part of our “Ruff Life Academy”! We will explore how to interact and communicate with dogs, and how they communicate with us. We will do a little myth busting about guide dogs, can they really tell us when it is time to cross the street? How to determine if you are ready to welcome a guide dog into your life and how they might fit into your everyday routine. Why those O&M and ILS skills are so important to be successful with a guide dog, exploration of a variety of training options when you are ready, and what training with a guide dog is like and the transition home with your new partner!
