Puppies who went onto Other Careers


Just because a puppy does not have what it takes to become a Guide Dog does not mean that they cannot go onto making an impact in someone else's life in a positive way. When a puppy is dropped, or Career Changed, from Guide Dogs for the Blind the puppy will be evaluated by GDB for eligibility for another career with another service dog organization. Guide Dogs for the Blind currently has agreements with 12 other service dog schools for which our puppies will be evaluated. However, some of these dogs will not be eligible for other service dogs schools. But that still does not mean that they cannot have a career in helping people. Many of our career changed dogs which have returned to their raisers have gone into the therapy dog career. And if the raiser is not able to take their puppy back they still have the option of asking Guide Dogs to place them with a person who will use them as a therapy dog.
