WHY LEADER DOG?
Each year, Leader Dogs for the Blind is the answer for thousands of people who are in critical need of our services—and the need continues to grow.
CONFIDENCE & INDEPENDENCE
After receiving white cane training or guide dog training, our clients regain their sense of independence and their confidence. They are no longer afraid to walk down the street alone.
The boost in confidence and travel skills gives many clients the momentum needed to further their education or use mass transit to get to a job interview.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
With a newfound confidence and ability to travel independently, clients can once again–or perhaps for the first time ever–live a healthy lifestyle, which benefits mental and physical well-being.
FAMILY & COMMUNITY
The ability to travel safely allows clients to reconnect with their community and provides peace of mind to their family and friends.
