Breeds Used
At Guide Dogs for the Blind, we breed Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and Lab/Golden crosses from our own specially-selected, purebred stock. Each of these four breeds meets the basic requirements of a guide dog:

a willing and stable temperament
a realistic size and weight for accompanying a person
a double coat that is easily maintained and suitable for a variety of climates
:toofunny: After all they need all the help they can get. :tounge:
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.
