The Seeing Eye Advocacy App

An image reading 'Download Our New Advocacy App, Now Available In The Apple App Store'The Seeing Eye has developed a free app for Apple/iOS to provide information about the U.S. and Canadian laws that ensure guide dog handlers have access to public places 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.

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.
