I am very excited to announce that The Seeing EyeR Advocacy App is live!

Many of you have heard that we were developing an advocacy app. For those of
you who don't know about this journey, we have been working for nearly two
years with a developer to create a free app that provides information about
U.S. and Canadian laws that give guide dog handlers access to various
settings and protect them from interference from people and other dogs. The
app also contains some educational materials The Seeing Eye has developed on
these topics including the Guide Dog At Work Campaign and our taxi and
rideshare flier.

If you want to download the app and check it out, go to this link:

For those of you who are Android users, we ask for your patience. The Apple
app was our first step and we will begin work with our developers on the
Android version as soon as we can and will let you know when it's out.

We hope this will be a useful resource for those of us who are guide dog
handlers; guide dog instructors who want to know the laws when they are
traveling with dogs and working in the field with students and graduates;
business owners; dog owners who want to know how to manage their pet dogs
around guide dogs; and anyone else who might need or want the information.

We could not have done this without the hard work and determination of staff
and the developer we contracted with to design the app. The support and
encouragement from our Seeing Eye graduate community has been invaluable
during this process. This is our first version, so we appreciate your
feedback and your patience. We will need to make periodic updates to fix
bugs and to update information about the laws as they change. This is just
the beginning.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
