Student Spotlight

Senior Alex Bohensky has been a member of the 4-Footed Leaders Puppy Raising Program since 2016, and has raised four German Shepherds for The Seeing Eye. In the puppy raising program, a puppy arrives at seven weeks old, and stays with you until about eighteen months old. He is responsible for training and obedience, attending weekly meetings, and going on outings with the dog to be sure it has a lot of exposure to become a guide dog. Tasha, the dog that Alex raised from March 2020 until September 2021, has completed her training, and is now a service dog for a blind man, who is also a veteran. The picture is Tasha in her harness at The Seeing Eye facility in Morristown.
