15,000 visitors a year tour our campuses
More than 2,000 puppy raisers volunteer to help raise puppies that will go on to become guide dogs
If you enjoy both people and dogs, you will find our work interesting and varied, with something new happening all the time. Every day is different and offers deep meaning as you have direct impact on how we take care of the dogs and people who participate in our programs. Our collaborative environment thrives on innovation and encourages learning and growth.
"GDB is ‘ivy league’ in the service dog industry, both in terms of ethical training practice and the quality of its services. I am surrounded by fantastic people who work hard, but also know how to have a good time. I could not have designed myself a more satisfying career path, whether helping puppies grow and develop, building raisers’ skill and competence, or watching it all come together in training and class."
