The Israel Guide Dog Centre is dedicated to improving the quality of life of blind, visually impaired and disabled people. We provide them with mobility, independence, self-confidence and companionship through the faithful assistance of guide, emotional support and PTSD dogs specially trained in Hebrew to meet Israel’s rigorous and challenging environment. Founded in 1991, we are members of the International Guide Dog Federation and operate the only internationally accredited guide dog programme in Israel.
