Enrollment for the 2019 Dog Days of Summer program is now open


Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation’s summer program is designed for the dog lover! Children learn about Fidelco’s German Shepherd guide dogs – their development, training, and the amazing partnerships our guide dogs have with men and women who are blind. Participants will experience working with a  guide dog as someone who is blind by participating in blindfold walks, and learning about the everyday challenges that people with visual impairments may face.

Children will also learn about other breeds and their origins, canine development, puppy raising, basic dog training, health care, grooming and first aid. They will work in our kennel, assisting with feeding and cleaning to help them understand the responsibility of dog ownership. Other topics of discussion include but are not limited to: anti-drug messaging, canine jobs outside of “guide dog” work, dog-related career opportunities for humans, and more!
