The Seeing Eye

The Seeing Eye is the oldest existing guide dog school in the world. The organization was established in 1929 and headquartered in Morris County as of 1931. Its mission is to enhance the independence, dignity, and self-confidence of blind people through the use of Seeing Eye dogs. The organization breeds, raises and trains puppies to become guide dogs, while also training the blind in how to handle and care for their dogs.

The Seeing Eye welcomes students, groups, and individuals to visit the campus and learn more about the world’s oldest guide dog school through the Seeing Eye Public Visit Program. The program includes a presentation by an instructor with a Seeing Eye® dog and a question-and-answer session with a Seeing Eye graduate.

Public programs are held every Thursday and once a month on Saturdays. The program begins at 10 a.m. and concludes at approximately 11:45 a.m. Reservations are required. While there is no fee to visit, donations are greatly appreciated. To book a tour, please call (973) 539-4425 extension 1775 or email [email protected] to inquire about available dates and make a reservation.
