Dog Breeds


Freedom Guide Dogs does its own breeding in order to produce quality, healthy dogs that will make excellent guides. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to work with several different breeds of dog.


Labrador Retriever: The Labrador is our tried and true breed. They adapt well to various situations and are particularly well suited for people with special needs.


Barbets:  Barbets are French waterdogs.  They have a wooly, curly coat and like the poodle, they do not shed.  Their personality is described as companionable, joyful, goofy, obedient, and intelligent. They are quick to learn and great with children, families, and the elderly.  They are not currently recognized by the AKC.


Smooth-Coated Collie: This herding breed is intelligent, easy going, even tempered and fairs well with other animals and people.
