GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND
Assistance Dog Training Project
Guide Dogs for the blind in Hungary provides assistance dogs for visually impaired individuals. They are the only organization providing this service in Hungary and exist totally through the support of the community via donations.
The costs involved in acquiring, educating, and training a dog, as well as educating the visually impaired individual to handle them are extremely high. This restricts the number of dogs the organization is able to supply and therefore the number of individuals whose lives can be impacted by having an assistance dog. DBL supported this program in 2012/2013 and has continued its support in 2014/2015.
