After a few years of volunteering at shelters taking care of cats and walking the dogs, Susan joined The Seeing Eye. This started a wonderful 5-year volunteer service raising puppies for the blind and learning more about dog behavior and effective behavior modification techniques. The Seeing Eye is the first guide school in the world established in 1929. It is located on a 60-acre campus in Morristown New Jersey. Its mission is to enhance the independence, dignity, and self-confidence of blind people through the use of Seeing Eye Dogs.
