Leader Dogs for the Blind


People who are blind or visually impaired endure hardships we can barely imagine. Things that were once routine and taken for granted, suddenly become insurmountable hurdles.

That’s where Leader Dogs for the Blind steps in. From white cane training to matching people with a Leader Dog, they provide the tools and training to reintroduce people to a life of independence, confidence and companionship. It’s a way of living that leads to a new perspective on life.

Raj Kothari is a member of a board committee and found his passion for Leader Dogs for the Blind in large part because of his daughter Priya who is visually impaired.

Priya used a cane for many years and has now found additional freedoms with her Leader Dog, Dakota.
