Guide Dogs of Texas Inc


Our highly-trained guide dogs are more than just the "eyes" for visually impaired Texans - they are loving and constant companions, providing them with freedom, mobility and independence to go about their daily lives

Real Life

The clients we serve are capable individuals who desire more mobility and independence. Many of them work, attend universities, or both. As an example, our clients work in diverse fields such as teaching, counseling, fine arts, scientific research, translation services or own their own businesses. The following are experiences of Gail, one of our clients who is a medical researcher and a PhD candidate:

"I have found my times with GDTX as a client to be rewarding and enlightening. Because of their efforts I am truly a successful guide dog user with minimal limitations and lots of opportunities. Having Louise, with her endless enthusiasm, irrepressible personality, and time-proven training, has given me the confidence and mobility I previously felt slipping away. To this day, it never ceases to amaze me, when I place my key in my office door having just walked nearly 2 miles down residential and business streets, through a maze of hallways, past knots of people-totally unscathed and without seeing anything more than light and shadow. To this day it gives me chills!"
