The Seeing Eye strongly encourages puppy sitting rather than kenneling in the event that you must travel during your time as a puppy raiser. It is healthier for your puppy and allows them to continue club meetings/activities and not be limited by the three week quarantine to home after kenneling.
The Seeing Eye has developed the forms below to assist you and your puppy sitter. Please be sure to let your area coordinator know where your puppy will be staying while you are away.
We have many families that no longer raise but love to sit, and we want all pending families* to puppy sit. It is a wonderful opportunity for them to get “hands on” experience before they receive their new puppy! If you are unable to find a puppy sitter in your club, you may reach out to neighboring Seeing Eye puppy clubs, or to a trusted family member or friend who understands the rules we have for our special pups. If someone other than an approved Seeing Eye puppy raiser is puppy sitting for you, they may not take the puppy out in public where dogs are otherwise not permitted.
*Pending families must be approved and have attended 2 meetings.
