Guide Dogs


Guide dogs are specially trained dogs to provide mobility assistance for individuals who are blind or visually impaired to travel safely from one place to another. They do this by navigating sidewalks, alerting to stairs, crossing streets safely and avoiding obstacles including hanging ones.

Guide dogs know left and right and are very helpful with object identification when asked to "find" a door, counter, elevator, escalator, sidewalk, chair, etc.

People receiving guide dogs will attend team training at the KSDS facility in Washington, Kansas for 21 days. Meals will be provided by civic organizations and other volunteers.

Before filling out the initial application for the Guide Program, please take time to read the brochure attached. To begin the process of receiving a Guide Dog, please fiil out the application request form. The application has several phases and includes requests for a video and an interview. If you have any questions about applying for a dog and want to contact a staff member, email us.
