Lions Foundation of Canada

Since 1983, the lives of over 1200 men, women and children from the age of 8 to 84, have been enriched by the services of specially trained Dog Guides from Lions Foundation of Canada.

These Dog Guide "handlers" from as far east as St John's, Newfoundland, and as far west as Victoria BC., have experienced the enrichment of their lives through newfound freedom and independence with the companionship and assistance of a devoted Dog Guide partner.

In addition to training Dog Guides for people who are blind or visually impaired, the Lions Foundation also trains Dog Guides to meet the needs of Canadians with hearing and other medical or physical disabilities. All programs are offered at no charge to the client, but future care and maintenance become the responsibility of the Dog Guide recipient.

Dog Guide Programs:

Canine Vision Dog Guides - for people who are blind or visually impaired
Hearing Ear Dog Guides - for people who are deaf or hard of hearing
Special Skills Dog Guides - for people with a medical or physical disability
Seizure Response Dog Guides - for people who have epilepsy
Autism Assistance Dog Guides -  Helping children with autism spectrum disorder aged 3 to 18 years of age,
New!!! Diabetic Alert Dog Guides - to assist people aged 10 or older who have type 1 diabetes with hypoglycemic unawareness

Training programs are both generic, to meet the general needs of clients, but are also specific to the needs of the individual client to whom the Dog Guide is assigned. In the final stage of training the client and Dog Guide train together and live together at the Oakville training facility for up to 26 days to ensure bonding and a team approach to work and on-going care.
