We use many different breeds as dog guides.
The majority of dogs that we use are Labrador Retrievers. You’ve seen Mambo, who’s a Yellow
Lab. We have Black Labradors, and they really have proven themselves, world wide for many,
many years as being dependable, adaptable, really food to train and can cope with all
sorts of different environments. We also use the Standard Poodle, this is a breed that
we’ve started using fairly recently, because lots of people these days are suffering with
allergies. And one of the benefits of the Poodle is the fact that their non-shedding.
If you do tend to be allergic to dogs, then the Standard Poodle doesn’t shed the hair
like the Lab does and the Golden Retriever. So it’s often a benefit to people who do have
allergies and people who are allergic to dogs in general.
