All Leader Dog programs are provided at no cost to our clients thanks to dedicated donor support. In addition to the training, meals and housing during training, travel and equipment costs are all paid by Leader Dogs for the Blind because we believe no one should be denied access to independent travel.
This program matches clients with a Leader Dog and offers training in a wide variety of situations to fit current and future needs. Multiple options for the training format are available. Discover more about our Guide Dog program.
