Past Puppies

Puppies move on after their initial training. They normally go from their puppy training to Recall at the Guide Dogs for the Blind’s Boring, Oregon campus. When at recall, the puppies continue their training, receive more advanced training and harness training. If physical or temperamental issues are identified during the more advanced training, the puppies are then career changed. If the training goes well, and final evaluations are passed, the puppy is placed in a class with a visually impaired person, and will graduate approximately two weeks later. The visually impaired person and the graduate return home to start a new life as a team.
