If you are blind or partially sighted, a guide dog could change your life.
There's no upper age limit, people in their 70s, 80s and 90s have become successful guide dog owners. You don't need to have lost all your sight, most people who own a guide dog still have some vision. You don't have to be officially registered as blind or partially-sighted either.
Guide Dogs also recognise that the costs of owning a guide dog may not be easy for everyone to manage. It provides all the essential equipment free-of-charge and it will provide you with financial assistance if needed for things like food or veterinary costs.
No previous experience of keeping or caring for a dog is necessary. If you are committed and able enough to support and care for a guide dog, its training will teach you all you need to know.
