The prospective owner goes to the guide dog training school, usually for about three weeks, for training on handling a guide dog.

Once a person is matched with their dog they complete training and return home with their new guide. Most guide schools have scheduled visits where instructors visit the team in their home and work with them on any difficulties they've had in daily life activities together. Some schools retain ownership of the dog throughout the dog's life while others turn ownership over to the blind handler.

Guide dog training is different from any other kind of training dog. Typical candidates for positions training guide dogs have a college degree in a related field, such as animal behavior. They then spend a three-year apprenticeship with a guide dog school before becoming a full-fledged guide dog trainer/instructor. The field is extremely competitive. San Francisco State University recently started a masters degree program in Guide Dog Mobility. That is an excellent way to get in the field, but it too is extremely competitive. Basically, though, you need to be an animal lover, not OCD but relaxed and laid back, you need to like people and be comfortable around people with multiple disabilities Experience with dogs and blind people also helps. You can get involved with puppy raising or volunteering with a guide dog school.
