Learn what it means to live with a guide/service dog partner: how to look after them, how to balance work and play time, and the rights guide dogs have in public settings.
Guest speaker, Andrea Giudice will speak about dog owning, training, and handling skills. This workshop covers the process of guide dog training from birth to puppy-raising, training, and eventual pairing with a human. It also covers the dos and don’ts of guide dog management, what laws are concerning their use and access to public spaces and how to navigate the day-to-day challenges of living with a canine partner.
We welcome all participants. Please call Tracy Alfino at 1800-BRAILLE (272-4553) with any questions. Our Santa Barbara Center will be hosting this online presentation.
