Celebrating 92 years of Advocacy for Service Dog Handlers

WhenFri Jan 29, 2021 1pm – 2pm Mountain Time – Denver

Prior to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) only guide dogs were officially recognized as service dogs, extending federal protections only to people who were blind. 

Join Idaho Service Dog Advocates and  Laine Amoureux – Seeing Eye®, Dog Handler in a conversation with representatives from The Seeing Eye®, The oldest Guide Dog School in America, to chat about the history of The Seeing Eye, the impact Morris Frank’s advocacy efforts had on the acceptance of service dogs in public, how service dog advocacy strategies have changed over the 92 years since the school’s founding and the impact of handler etiquette on successful advocacy.  #ServiceDogAdvocacy #ServiceDogsofIdaho #IdahoServiceDogs #FeatureFriday #FRDA21 #CID
