Thanks to Guiding Eyes For The Blind, who provide dogs whether you can afford them or not. The average cost of training each dog is appx. $20,000 (or at least it was 20 years ago when my ex got his second dog.) Then there is the cost of training you with the dog for a few weeks. If you are poor, they will even pay for the flight there and back! What a fabulous organization. RIP Tigger and Sheba
