The Seeing Dogs Alliance
Founded in 1979 to provide mobility training and guide dogs was relaunched in 2002 as The Seeing Dogs Alliance to provide an alternative source of trained dogs to guide visually impaired people in the United Kingdom.
In the UK the total number of dogs trained To guide visually impaired people is falling each year and the waiting time is typically around two years for a new or replacement dog. We are dedicated to providing reliable, well-trained dogs in addition to other guide dog charities to increase the numbers of dogs available to those who need them most. You can be sure that your donation is spent on Seeing Dog mobility.
Our trustees are guide dog owners and professionals, our trainers are experienced in positive reward based methods and our puppies and dogs are raised and trained whilst living at home with our trainers and volunteers.
We train and develop our dogs to provide cost-effective and alternative mobility for those who need it most. We are members of the International Guide Dog Federation, the European Guide Dog Federation and Assistance Dogs UK
You can volunteer to be a part of our growing charity if you can spare some time to fund raise, board a dog or raise and develop a puppy. The independence you bring will be life changing. Please call 01634 572125 or email email@example.com if you feel you can help.
