Airport welcoming service dogs in training to get used to helping owners

OAKLAND, Calif. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An airport can be a bustling, confusing place.

And then there are the signs--thousands of them.

But what if you couldn't read the signs? You'd need some help, right?

Oakland International got a whole lot cuter when guide dogs for the blind brought together more than 25 puppies in training to sniff around and get comfortable.

Alaska Airlines welcomed the young trainees to the ticket counter, boarding gates and baggage claim.

Guide dog trainers say the dogs need to be calm if they're going to help someone who can't see.

They say the dogs are trained to tune into their owner's needs.
