Seeing Eye Dogs | Seeing Eye Dogs Australia

This International Guide Dogs Day (Wednesday 24 April), Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs will catch the ferry from Woy Woy to Davistown and back to celebrate the important role that Seeing Eye Dogs play in the lives of people who are blind or have low vision.

Led by Seeing Eye Dogs puppy development trainer, Jess Wicker, the group will include puppy carers, other puppy development trainers and of course, puppies.

“This day is all about celebrating the invaluable service of Seeing Eye Dogs and dog guides; it’s also a chance for us to connect with our community and highlight the importance of our work for people who are blind or have low vision,” said Jess.

“We encourage anyone who sees us along the way to stop and say hi or find-out more about how they can get involved with our cause.

“We are always on the hunt for compassionate Aussies to become puppy carers and care for the next generation of Seeing Eye Dogs.

“Not only do you get to care for an adorable Seeing Eye Dog puppy, you get to feel good knowing that you’re part of an incredible cause.”

The group will leave from Woy Woy at 9:00am and arrive at Davistown at 9:25am. They’ll then stop at a local café before heading back to Woy Woy at 10:10am .
