National Guide Dog Month is a celebration of guide dogs throughout North America. Guide Dog Month was first inspired by our co-founder, Dick Van Patten, who was impressed by the intelligence and training of guide dogs. During a visit to a local guide dog school, he was blindfolded and experienced how guide dogs provide mobility and assistance to visually impaired and blind people. After learning about the costs, dedication and commitment to raise and train a guide dog, he was inspired to help raise awareness and support the cause.
Since 2017, Natural Balance has partnered with Guide Dogs for the Blind - a national organization founded in 1942 dedicated to empowering lives by creating exceptional partnerships between people, dogs and communities.
