The Royald Guide Dogs for the Blind Association provides and trains dogs as guides for blind people. The public donates dogs to the association for this purpose. Only a small fraction of dogs donated as adults are suitable for training. For this reason the association has a puppy alking scheme where pups, either donated or bred by the association, are given to volunteers who raise the pups until they are old enough for training. Volunteers are supervised by the association.
