Making a Way for Future Guide Dog Trainers!

2019. 6. 14 News

JGDA's School for Guide Dog Trainers re-started from April 2019, after 4 years break.

Fresh breeze has been sweeping our Kanagawa Training Center, since we welcomed our new students for the School for Guide Dog Trainers this spring. 


Students vary in age, experience and hometown, but they share the same passion and motivation for guide dog movement.  Our curriculum meets Standard 3 - Technical Staff Education and Development of the International Guide Dog Federation Standard.

Classes we offer are not limited to guide dog training theory and mobility instruction, but there are rehabilitation for vision impaired persons, psychology, ophthalmology, Japanese laws and regulations, communication and our list goes on.
