GDB Lifestyle Workshop in Lone Star State
Guide Dogs for the Blind hosted a Lifestyle Workshop at the Criss Cole Center in Austin, TX to help blind men and women determine if having a Guide Dog is the right mobility choice for them. Approximately 25 local men and women received hands-on experience working with a Guide Dog and an overview of the services offered at GDB.
The workshop was directly followed by a luncheon where participants were greeted by many local Texas Guide Dog users and puppy raisers. GDB’s Acting CEO Morgan Watkins (an Austin native) and Alumni Director Theresa Duncan were also in attendance to offer their support and personal knowledge about being a Guide Dog user while Field Managers Bill Archie and Marc Gillard were able to provide their expertise and instruction.
