Seeing Eye Dogs Australia and Vision Australia are asking for a favour in looking after their gorgeous eight-week old pups, and we have no doubt that you, like us, are wondering if it’s really them doing us the favour.
Your soon-to-be furry friends are no ordinary dogs. The little heroes in time will in fact support the blind and vision-impaired across the country, but before they do, they have a little growing up to do—that’s where you come in.
While you don’t need to be a professional canine coach, there are several checkboxes that you’ll need to tick before you welcome pooch into your home.
- Have a secure yard
- Willing to have a dog inside your home
- Provide regular socialising for the puppy
- Conduct basic training
- Be available for group training
- Commit to 12 – 15 months of caring
Should you be deemed worthy of welcoming such a gorgeous little fluff-ball into your life, Vision Australia will provide you with a puppy pack that includes everything you need—like a lead, collar, food and vet care—for the year ahead.
Currently, Seeing Eye Dogs Australia is looking for carers within several inner-suburbs of Melbourne, south-east of Melbourne, the Bendigo region and now Geelong and surrounding suburbs, too. Find out more information and apply here.
In case you missed it, Melbourne is getting a stack of new dog parks. Perfect for your new mate.
