Between 13 and 15 months of age, puppies return to the GDB campus from the homes of their puppy raisers so that they can begin formal training to become skilled and disciplined guide dogs.

Our instructors are among the best in the world at training guide dog teams through innovative, personalized training. Our dogs are trained with positive reinforcement methods that use high-value rewards of both food and praise.


REWARD GOOD BEHAVIOR


TEACH A DOG NEW TRICKS

Clicker training uses a clicking sound to tell a dog when he or she does something correctly. The clicker is a tiny device held in the palm of a guide dog handler.


TRAIN A HEALTHY GUIDE DOG

All great guide dogs possess an eagerness to please and a willingness to work. Their profession is a natural fit, and your gift helps them lead the way!
