Guiding Eyes for the Blind

Andrea Martine is a trainer for the national Guiding Eyes for the Blind organization and daughter of a long time Fountains resident, Jim Martine. She presented a documentary on her work and brought one of her well trained canine guides for us to meet. As a professional trainer, Andrea rigorously trains these specially bred dogs to enrich the lives of the blind and visually impaired. The dogs assist clients in navigating the world around them and optimizing independence.
