About our dogs
Learn more about our Guide Dogs and their work in the community.
Since 1957, Guide Dogs Victoria has been the leading provider of Guide Dogs throughout Australia. We have achieved global recognition for the quality of our Guide Dogs and training programs.
The key to success lies in experience and attention to individual detail. Every training support is based on personal preference. By identifying yours early on, we can select the best dog specifically for you.
Our Guide Dogs take part in comprehensive safety and relationship training, and detailed behavioural analysis from an early age. We learn each dog’s skills and temperament to gain an intimate understanding of how they might eventually match yours.
We take the same thorough approach to educating the community about the valuable work of a Guide Dog. Learn the story of how puppies grow into Guide Dogs, understand the best way to interact with a person and their working dog, familiarise yourself with where a Guide Dog can and cannot go, and learn about different career paths for puppies.
Our Guide Dogs provide so much more than mobility benefits. They can enhance social participation, well-being, and encourage their handler to try new experiences and challenges. Learn more here.
