Guide dog puppy presentation in Lincolnville

Jul 05, 2018

Lincolnville — Lincolnville Community Library, 208 Main St., will host Carol Rogers of Lincolnville -- along with her pup -- on Wednesday, July 18 at 7 p.m., for a discussion of the challenges and joys of raising puppies for Guiding Eyes for the Blind. The organization provides seeing eye dogs for the blind. Rogers will share her experiences fostering pups specially chosen by the program for early foundational training. “Raisers” nurture these puppies, patiently teaching basic skills and providing many varied public outings. After 12 to 16 months, well-socialized young adult dogs are returned to Guiding Eyes to begin their guide dog training in earnest.
