Our Starting Point - The Breeding Program
BC Guide Dog Services maintains an in-house breeding program. The role of the breeding program is to provide a regular supply of suitable adult dogs for our training programs. We breed Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers and a first cross of the Labrador & Golden Retriever. These dogs are exceptionally affable, gentle, intelligent, energetic and good natured, making them excellent companions and working dogs. We participate at an international level with other guide dog organizations in the sharing of puppies and frozen semen.
