Raising a Guide Dog

One way which Guide Dogs Queensland provides support is through their Guide Dogs mobility program. A Guide Dog is trained to guide their blind or vision impaired handler in a given direction, avoiding obstacles along the way. The Guide Dog and their handler become a true partnership which provides a unique, safe and effective way of getting about independently. Our CEO’s wife, Natalie Robertson, has recently become a volunteer Puppy Raiser. In this blog she discusses her experience so far and provides some insight into what is involved with raising a guide dog.
