On this week’s episode of the Seeing Eye Dogs Show, Harriet catches up with Seeing Eye Dog handler Jen Nickols.
Jen is in the midst of training for a fundraising trek through the Bay of Fires, and training alongside her is her Seeing Eye Dog, Nellie.
While the Bay of Fires, a rugged track through some pristine Tasmanian wilderness, is a bit different to their usual environments, Jen has no worries about Nellie being able to navigate it.
According to Jen, Nellie’s a dog that’s willing to give anything a try.
“There’s nothing she’s scared of,” she said.
Caption: Jen and Nellie are ready for what the Bay of Fires holds.
Jen and Nellie’s trek through Tasmania is part of a fundraising activity for Seeing Eye Dogs.
Because Seeing Eye Dogs have had such a positive impact in Jen’s life, the cause is one that is very close to her heart.
