Recon made it!

My family and I started raising Seeing Eye puppies in 2014. Over the last seven years, we raised four puppies, getting them when they’re seven weeks old, training them in basic obedience and socializing them in the larger world, and then sending them back to the Seeing Eye for advanced training when they’re 16-18 months old. We’re currently on Puppy #5 (Steven, a black Labrador retriever) but none of them had made it all the way to being a working Seeing Eye dog. 

Until now. Earlier this month we learned Recon, our fourth puppy, made it into the program and is now a working dog! Many thanks to everyone who’s helped us with raising the puppies (and yes, resisting the temptation to pet them during a meeting counts!).
