Overview of Our Guide Dog Program
Guide dogs are taught essential house manners, as well as how to behave in public.
They provide safe mobility and independence to people who are blind or visually impaired by:
- Indicating road crossings
- Negotiating around obstacles
- Locating objects such as stairs, doors, and elevators
- Indicating curbs and changes in elevation
Dogs with Wings has developed a detailed application process for our guide dog program to ensure the success of each team.
