Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Chicago Guide Dog Meeting

Saturday, February 8 - 10:00 am - 11:30 am

We are excited to host the Chicago Guide Dog group at Second Sense! This meeting is open to all who are interested in the service dog lifestyle whether you have a guide dog or are just considering one.

The focus of this meeting is advocacy for service animal handlers. Our guest speaker is Toni Eames, co-founder of International Association of Assistance Dog Partners (IAADP), a nonprofit organization representing guide, hearing and other assistance dog handlers. IAADP is dedicated to:

  • providing a voice for handlers who use assistance dogs,
  • working together on issues of mutual concern, and
  • fostering the partnerships between handlers and their service animals.

Toni has been partnered with a guide dog since 1967 and offers a wealth of information regarding your rights working with a service animal. She has been instrumental in educating hospitality staff, airline personnel and law enforcement officers on issues related to service dogs.
