The Guide Dog Training School Redbridge

Why we need your help

The Guide Dog Training School Redbridge trains around 250 guide dogs each year.

The dogs come to Redbridge when they are about 14 months old and ready to start learning.  They spend about 16 weeks with us doing their initial guide dog training.  During this "early" training stage, the dogs learn the fundamentals of guiding, which include:

- wearing a harness  

- walking in a straight line 

- stopping at hazards, such as kerbs and doors   

- avoiding obstacles    

- ignoring distractions when working  

- staying calm in noisy and busy environments

When a dog has completed its early training, it moves on to second stage, or "advanced" training at one of twenty mobility offices around the country.  It is then "matched" with a person who is visually impaired, giving that person freedom and independence they might not otherwise enjoy. 

As a charity, Guide Dogs relies on the generosity of the public to continue its life changing work.
