Beth and Companion Dog Margie

Companion Dog Margie Changes Beth’s World

Not every dog that joins the Guide Dog WA program is destined to become a Guide Dog. Golden Labrador, Margie was progressing well with her training until, at 18 months of age, she was prematurely withdrawn from the program due to mild arthritis.

Our team of volunteer Puppy Raisers, Formal and Temporary Boarders do an amazing job of providing short, medium and longer term homes for puppies and young adult dogs in training.

Guide Dogs WA provides all food, toys, bedding, leads, collars, veterinary costs. With close guidance from our expert trainers, you will be required to uphold core basic training and obedience regimes, while enjoying the fun and companionship that comes with sharing your home with a highly-trained dog.

We encourage you to attend one of our free, no-commitment information sessions to learn more.
