The non-profit school has been in operation since 1993, training hundreds of guide dogs and we bring you some great photos of its cutest studends, especially for International guide dogs day.
The school also operates adoption schemes for retired dogs and animals that do not make the grade as guide dogs.
James Park, a trainer at the school, told news agency Yonhap that "Our training program aims to help guide dogs get used to dealing with crowded places, such as apartment complexes, subways, department stores, escalators and crosswalks."
Volunteers can get involved in a variety of ways – the school runs puppy walking and homecare programs, allowing a large range of people to play an active part in the dogs' training. The school also obtained full membership of the globally recognized International Guide Dog Federation.
Organizers screened an introductory video that included footage of the dogs' training sessions, and read out letters of thanks to volunteers, written by grateful guide dog recipients. Pastor Ji Ho Yang, 38, was introduced to his new guide dog – named Hanuel – at the event. Yang said, "I'd like to thank the school for all of its work over the years. Being visually impaired means you sometimes have a hard time approaching other people. Guide dogs can help change that. They are a source of motivation for me. I'm sure I'll become great friends with Haneul!
