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 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.
