Pilot Dogs operates a breeding program of German Shepherds, Doberman Pinschers, Golden Retrievers, Standard Poodles, Boxers, and Labrador Retrievers and raises them in private homes until they are ready for training. Pilot Dogs is supported entirely by charitable 501(c) 3 contributions; there is no charge for its services.
Pilot Dogs publishes a descriptive brochure and a flier entitled Fourteen Steps to Understanding Those Without Sight.
