At Southeastern Guide Dogs, our four-legged superheroes offer confidence, courage, and hope.


Guide dogs, service dogs, facility therapy dogs, breeder dogs, and others transform the lives of our students and graduates. It takes two years, tens of thousands of dollars, and a community of supporters and volunteers to create our world-class dogs. People with visual impairments and veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) gain confidence, freedom, and hope with a guide dog or service dog by their side.


As we pursue excellence, our education, socialization, and training strategies help our dogs follow clear career paths from preschool to graduation to a meaningful career to retirement.
