What are Companion Dogs?
Puppies offering companionship after taking a different career path.
Companion Dogs are reclassified dogs; that is, puppies with unique personalities or other traits that mean they haven’t fully graduated from their Guide Dog classes.
Companion Dogs are paired mostly with people who already receive services or supports from a Guide Dogs organisation. With their calming presence and unique training, Companion Dogs can bring a sense of stability and friendship to both individuals and families. They also offer the benefit of encouraging regular exercise through walking and playing.
In any Companion Dog placement, we provide support to help each dog settle into their new home before the partnership is made official.
To enquire about Companion Dog placements, please find and contact Guide Dogs in your local area.
