Otis has graduated, and it’s all because of your sup-paw-t!

After two years of training, Otis will go to work with a lucky New Zealander.

After a rigorous programme of training and testing, Otis has graduated as a fully qualified guide dog. Otis’ last weeks of training were especially intensive. He was taken on trains, the bus, to the mall and to cafés, just as he would with his own handler. He went through blind testing, where his handler was blindfolded and monitored carefully. He couldn’t have done it without kind New Zealanders like you. From his puppy raisers who cared for him, to donors like you, who funded his training – Otis’ achievement is a joint effort. Thank you for being a part of it.
