How Can A Guide Dog Help You?




Making the decision to apply for a guide dog is a major milestone and the beginning of a life-changing event. If you find yourself wishing a guide dog could help you locate the elevator, find a crosswalk button, prevent you from veering in the street, stop for an overhead obstacle, or navigate crowds, guide dog mobility might be right for you! Guide Dogs of Texas is proud to offer one-on-one training, a relaxed and informal training center, flexible class schedules, and specialized pre-training of each dog. If you’re ready to apply for a guide dog, you’ve come to the right place. At Guide Dogs of Texas, we will guide you to independence with a loving and furry, four-legged companion. Read More

See what we do...




Serving our clients is at the core of what we do. The process of accepting a guide dog into your life doesn’t happen overnight. There are a myriad of key programs which help us fulfill our mission to create freedom, mobility and independence for blind Texans. It takes, on average, two years to get a guide dog ready for service. But the process starts much earlier in our selective breeding program and continues with a dedicated group of puppy raisers who care for and socialize the dogs while they are growing up. We have additional help on that front with the Pawsitive Approach program. It all culminates in successful client/dog teams throughout the state. Read More
