There are too many programs and independent trainers to accurately count how many guide dogs are in place in the world. The most recognized program in the world that trains Guide dogs is the Seeing Eye in Morristown New Jersey. Only dogs trained by the Seeing Eye are properly called "Seeing Eye Dogs." All other dogs trained to guide the blind are called guide dogs. The Seeing Eye reported in their 2007 annual report that they had 1,760 graduate teams in the field.
