About Guide Dogs for the Blind.


Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB) accepts blind and visually impaired students from throughout the United States and Canada, for training with a Guide Dog.


Transportation to and from the school, room and board, costs of training, and all services are provided free of charge, and are supported entirely by private donations.


Students have access to instructors, counselors and veterinarians, a full-time nursing staff, a dedicated dormitory staff, and people who attend to students' needs, in order to make their stay as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.


GDB's schools are unique, in that they offer follow-up services to each graduate of their program, at their home or place of business, for the lifespan of their dog.


GDB also offers accelerated training for qualified students returning to their school for successor dogs.


Guide Dogs for the Blind has already provided more than 10,000 dogs to people with vision loss since 1942.
