Guide Dogs’ research programme is instrumental in helping to shape our policies, campaigns and services. We have three areas of interest and we carry out research in these areas either in-house or with external collaborators.
The three areas of interest are:
- Canine research including the behaviour, health and welfare of our dogs)
- Psycho-social research (the emotional well-being of our service users)
- Ophthalmic research (how we can use residual vision to maximise mobility)
