Guide Dog Program

For decades now, Guide Dogs have been a beacon of joy and opportunity – not only for people living with vision and mobility loss, but for many other Australians.

The organisation's flagship program is the Guide Dog Training program, where qualified trainers work with both dogs and recipients to establish a successful partnership. This program ensures that guide dogs are trained to assist their owners in navigating their surroundings safely, instilling a sense of confidence and independence.

A Guide Dog can completely transform a person’s life. A Guide Dog helps their handler navigate the world and continue doing things like going to the shops, getting to work and moving through crowds safely and independently. Guide Dogs can also enhance social participation, well-being, and encourage their handler to try new experiences and challenges.
