A new litter has arrived! Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind is pleased to announce the birth of our latest litter of puppies. Within several weeks, these puppies will require foster homes to learn what it takes to be a ‘good dog’ before entering formal training to become guide dogs to help someone in need.
Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind is seeking foster families for our latest arrivals. You must be home most of the day or obtain permission to take the dog to work with you. You require access to a vehicle for veterinary appointments and training sessions. All food and veterinary expenses are provided. This is a 12-18 month commitment, raising and training the dog in your home, with the expectation for daily long walks in all conditions.
When the dog is ready to enter into formal training at the National Training Centre of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Manotick, you must be prepared to give up the dog, so that it may continue its journey to aid as a guide dog.
Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind was established as a registered charity in 1984. Since that time, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind has provided professionally trained guide dogs to more than 700 Canadians who are visually impaired from coast to coast. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind also trains assistance dogs for individuals in the Ottawa area with other mobility related disabilities.
