Civic Center outing – August 2011

The City Sights Guide Dog for the Blind puppy raising group currently has three puppies over 16 weeks of age, three puppies under 16 weeks, and three potential puppy raisers almost ready to receive their first puppy. This month we paired potential puppy raisers with our older puppies to practice handling skills. Potential raisers handled puppies in the San Francisco Public Library’s main branch including walking down stairs.

After handling exercises our current raisers with puppies over 16 weeks of age posed for a photo in front of San Francisco’s City Hall.
