Best Answer

There is no central registration for the Service Dogs or Guide Dogs in the USA.

Based on the number of dogs trained each year and the number of Active Dogs published from each of the schools it's estimated there are between 8,000-20,000 active GUIDE DOGS for the blind in everyday usage. And between 15,000 and 25,000 other Service Dogs in use.

Guide Dogs for the Blind added 343 new dog teams in 2009.

The Seeing Eye Graduated 274 dogs, 74 of which were new dog teams in 2009.

It's estimated that between all the schools in the US, only 1,000 Guide dogs and nearly 2,000 other types of Service Dogs were trained in 2009.
