Guide Dogs are service animals, trained to assist people who are blind and visually impaired. They help a person who is blind by navigating obstacles, changes in elevation and more. Essentially, these dogs keep their handler safe throughout their daily routine.
Some dogs that are a part of our program want to do a job, but may not particularly love being a Guide Dog. And that's okay! That's why Guide Dogs of the Desert is proud to offer an alternative career path for these dogs. Support K9s are placed with law enforcement, emergency response agencies or community organizations in order to provide the gentle, loving support that only a dog can offer.
