SEDA Puppy Carers Needed!
ROYAL CANIN® Pet Nutrition Advisor Louisa Denton has just taken on the role of Puppy Carer for Seeing Eye Dogs Australia (SEDA). Lou will be looking after Labrador Hughie for the first 12 to 15 months of his life. During this period she will be providing Hughie with basic training and socialisation.
Hughie will frequently visit the office with Lou, which means all Associates at the Melbourne Mars Office will play a role in his development. As part of his training, Hughie cannot receive pats whilst wearing his blue puppy coat or while he is sleeping. However, Lou will be welcoming some ‘Meet and Greets’ during his playtime!
ROYAL CANIN® has been supporting SEDA for almost 10 years with precise and individualised nutrition for every Seeing Eye Dog and puppy in training. We are very excited to have Hughie in our office and in the loving care of one of our Associates.

SEDA is the only national provider of these remarkable dogs specially bred and trained to act as Seeing Eye Dogs for people who are blind or have low vision. These unique dogs provide the gift of independence and freedom in day-to-day life by becoming the ‘eyes’ of a person who is blind.
It costs more than $50,000 and takes up to two years of intensive training for one Seeing Eye Dog to graduate. SEDA, a division of Vision Australia, receives little Government funding, relying on the generous support of the public to undertake this important work.
