Area Coordinator of The Seeing Eye, Christine Higham led the demo, explaining the
task of puppy raisers to mall visitors

Socializing is especially important to the pups!

Three siblings, Heimo, Huck and Hannah, received their vests after passing their test.

Vesting occurs at about six months and the puppy raiser's task is almost half complete!

Mall Demos from previous years

After the demo, shoppers are invited to greet the puppies.

Veteran's Day Mall Walk

On November 11, 2015, puppy raisers from the Gloucester Club joined with our club for a Mall Walk. The two most recent arrivals, Delta and Burton joined us for the occasion and captured most of the attention.

A visit to Friendly's is almost a tradition!
