Training a guide dog is a long process, beginning with selected dogs undergoing an intensive five-month program with a guide dog trainer to learn the complex skills required for their new job.
As the training continues, the dogs learn to travel through crowded and confusing areas, such as shopping malls and busy city streets.
Training takes up to two years and costs $35,000 per dog, according to Guide dogs website.
