The Guide Dog Team

While many people know about the dog’s level of skill and training, it is important to realise that Guide Dog Handlers also undergo intensive training and develop special skills that go toward making a successful partnership with a Guide Dog.

Reclassified & rehomed dogs

Due to the exceptionally high standards required to become a Guide Dog or Therapy Dog, we need loving forever homes for the dogs that are not quite suited to these demanding roles.
