Guide Dogs for the Blind Campus

Please note that no visitors are permitted to bring their personal dogs to either of GDB's campuses. This ensures that we can keep all program dogs safe and focused on the task at hand namely becoming amazing guide dogs. We also ask that you do not leave any dogs in your vehicle while you are visiting our campuses. Even in cooler weather, the temperature within vehicles can escalate quickly posing a significant health risk to your dogs. Thank you for your cooperation.
