South African Guide Dogs here was founded in 1953. Dogs with the right temperament are bred to guide the visually impaired. These breeds are normally Golden Retrievers and Labradors. At seven weeks, the pups are housed with volunteers who train them for six months. This lady below is a puppy trainer.
Do read here to see how guide dogs are used after the puppy training phase is completed.
I just LOVED the L for Leaner on her back - don't you?
