Guide Dogs are Provided Free
All of our Guide Dogs are provided free to our students. Their extensive training is funded by your generous donations and volunteer efforts
Training for Recipients
Our dogs are highly-trained – and so are our students! Once a student is matched with a Guide Dog, they attend a 28 day training course where they learn all aspects of living and working with their new Guide Dog
