From the SEDA site:
Seeing Eye Dogs Australia provides Australians who are blind or vision impaired with the opportunity to participate as active members of the community. For a person who is blind, a Seeing Eye Dog is often essential in enabling them to be independent and active within the community. Their dog can provide mobility and security that might otherwise be threatened by everyday obstacles. Raised and trained to be a guide and friend, our dogs go through an extensive process before they are qualified and matched with a loving companion. This process takes up to two years before graduation.
