Client Programs Overview
Learn more about our free client programs for people who are blind or visually impaired.
At Guide Dogs for the Blind, we have three core client programs:
- Guide Dog Program: matching people with highly-trained guide dogs.
- Orientation & Mobility Immersion Program: teaching orientation and mobility tactics for safe, independent travel, including the skills that are most relevant to guide dog mobility.
- K9 Buddy Program: matching both children and adults with specially selected dogs to be their pets and companions.
We also have a lineup of informational events (both in person and virtual) for people interested in learning more about our programs and the guide dog lifestyle, as well as comprehensive programs for youth and young adults.
All of our services are provided free of charge, and we serve people from throughout the United States and Canada.
