Lions Foundation Of Canada Dog Guides


Lions Foundation of Canada trains Dog Guides and assist

Canadians with a wide range of disabilities. With six programs

in place, Canadians with disabilities are offered the opportunity

to find greater independence, mobility and safety through the

help of a Dog Guide.

Depending on the program, Dog Guides are trained to perform a

set of basic skills that are useful to all handlers. However, some of

their training is also tailored to meet the specific needs of their

future handler. In the final stage of training, the client and Dog 

Guide train and live together at the Oakville facility for two to four

weeks. This helps to ensure that the new working team develops a

bond and prepares them for their next step. Click the Donate Now
