At Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs we take a person-centered approach in how we support people who are blind or have low vision.
Likewise, we adopt a ‘dog-centered’ approach towards our Seeing Eye Dogs in how we care for them, from birth through to retirement.
We provide the highest level of care to ensure our dogs live happy and healthy lives, so they can support people who are blind or have low vision live the life they choose.
Three guiding principles
The Seeing Eye Dogs Animal Welfare Code follows the three guiding principles of choice, care, and connection.
We are committed to all our dogs having a sense of choice and control in their lives, and opportunities to take part in interesting and enjoyable activities. Read more about choice.
We are committed to all our dogs receiving the highest level of care regarding their nutrition, health, and environment. Read more about care.
We are committed to our dogs achieving meaningful connections and relationships with all people who provide them with care. Read more about connection.
