'I've got a companion wherever I am.' A guide dog and its handler have a very special bond. Guide dogs are trained to make life easier for people who are blind or who can't see well enough to get about safely. And a guide dog makes a wonderful friend. Find out about the breeding of guide dogs and the care of newborn puppies. Who looks after the pups as they grow up? When does training start? What does the young dog need to learn? When is it matched with its handler, and how do they learn to work together? Meet Spike, Britta, Lundy and Lonnie: guide dogs in action. Did you know? Dogs were trained to guide blind people in Vienna in 1819 at an Institute for the Blind founded by Johann Wilhelm Klein.
