Guide Dogs for the Blind - College Station

Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
GDB-College Station, LSGDR - College Station
Purpose:
Guide Dogs for the Blind provides enhanced mobility to qualified individuals through partnership with dogs whose unique skills are developed and nurtured by dedicated volunteers and a professional staff.
Our purpose as a puppy raising student organization is as follows:
You'll receive your puppy at approximately eight weeks old, and he/she will return for formal training between 15 and 17 months old. Puppy raisers are responsible for teaching their puppies good manners and basic obedience. You can have other pets in your home and if you are not able to commit to raising a puppy full time, there are still other ways to get involved with your local puppy club, such as puppy sitting.
