Visit our guide dogs

Public tours to the Blind Low Vision NZ Guide Dogs Centre are suspended until further notice. We are undergoing major building works and renovations, and tours will resume once all our new facilities are open and safe to visit.

Visit our Guide Dog Breeding & Training centre in Auckland. This is where all guide dogs puppies in New Zealand undergo their final training and assessments before being matched with a person who is blind or has low vision.
