Our Mission / Objective

Guide Dogs WA provide life changing Guide and Autism Assistance Dogs for Western Australians living with low vision, disability and illness.  Guide Dogs WA is the only Western Australian based provider of Guide Dog training services in the community.

 

Our Services

Guide Dog Program

A Guide Dog provides companionship and support for a person living with blindness or low vision: giving them the gift of independence and freedom.

These very special dogs are trained to guide their handler along learned routes to reach a destination, and to locate specific items such as a door, empty seats or pedestrian buttons at the traffic lights.

Guide Dogs WA provide services within the community that increase mobility, independence and quality of life for Western Australians living with blindness or vision loss.

Autism Assistance Dog Program

An Autism Assistance Dog helps improve the quality of life of a child with autism and his or her family through companionship, safety, independence and inclusion.

Autism Assistance Dogs have a remarkably calming effect on children with autism. And so much more.

Our Beneficiaries

Every day, nine Australians learn that they will go blind in their lifetime.

Our remarkably skilled and loyal dogs have been transforming the lives of Western Australians living with low vision and disability since Guide Dogs WA opened its doors in 1951.

Guide and Autism Assistance Dogs do so much more than help people who are blind to navigate the world around them. They do more than settle and calm a child living with autism, They are life-changing companions. Ever-alert to their human’s needs.

These dogs give the gift of independence and freedom to people who are living with low vision and other disabilities. And it takes two years of intensive training to prepare them for their unique task.

They bring joy and companionship…hope and opportunity.
