Our office is pleased to introduce Nira, a Guide Dog Puppy from the Guide Dogs for the Blind. She arrived with Heidi, our office manager, when she was just 8 weeks old. Heidi and her husband Don are teaching Nira basic obedience and socialization skills. She is spending her days at the office to learn how to behave in this environment. An important process since many Guide Dogs are given this task.
She'll be with our office until she is 18 months old when she'll return to Guide Dogs for the Blind campus in San Rafeal, CA for her final training before she is matched up with her new visually impaired companion.
Make sure to say hello to her when you visit the office!
