Would a Guide Dog benefit me?
Anyone who has significant vision impairment or is blind and is experiencing difficulty moving safely and independently through the community can benefit from a Guide Dog.
You do not have to be totally blind to be eligible for a Guide Dog. In fact, the majority of our Guide Dog handlers have varying degrees of vision.
First, our team of specialist Guide Dog Mobility Instructors perform detailed assessments to identify whether a Guide Dog partnership is right for you.
Then, we learn a little more about your lifestyle, preferred walking speed, and how frequently you travel and where to, to find a Guide Dog that perfectly meets your needs. This relationship is the foundation for years of improved independence, safety and confidence.
We train post-school-aged and university students, parents with young families, and people who are full-time, part-time, or not in the workforce. As long as you are active, age is not a barrier.
