Hi Everyone, As many of you may or may not know our father has lost his full vision in 2016. There is nothing more disorienting than losing your vision. The world is turned upside down. The independence once taken for granted is shattered and falls to the floor; one’s previous existence seems as distant as another life. The problem is that it isn't one or two things that need to be relearned; it’s everything. Going to the fridge to get a glass of milk used to be something he could do half asleep; after my father lost his vision it became a multi-step process, and any error meant he found himself standing, lost in a house he has lived in for years. In December my Father graduated from the Canine vision program where he spent a month at the training facility with his new best friend Babu. Babu has given my dad the independence and companionship to help adjust to his new life.

Thank you for registering for the Walk for Dog Guides! Thanks to our sponsors, 100 per cent of the funds raised from the Walk go directly towards the raising, training and placement of Dog Guides for Canadians with medical or physical disabilities. Dog Guides Canada has already provided specially trained Dog Guides to more than 3,000 men, women and children, all without any government funding. With your help more people will experience the mobility, safety and independence a devoted Dog Guide brings.
