Breeder Dog Custodians

Breeder dog custodians are essential volunteers who provide day-to-day care of GDB's valuable breeder dogs. You are invited to consider this exciting volunteer opportunity to literally care for the sires and dams of future working guide dogs while including a special dog in your family. 

The Breeding Stock Custodian volunteer opportunity is local to the San Francisco Bay Area.

Breeder Custodian Applications On Hold Through the End of 2021

We are thrilled many people are interested in supporting our mission as a Breeder Custodian. Because of the limited number of new breeding dogs selected each year for the GDB breeding colony, and the popularity of this volunteer role we are unable to accept any new applications until 2022. As this volunteer role is specific to the Bay Area we encourage you to explore other ways you may be able to support the Guide Dogs for the Blind mission on our Volunteer Page. If you have been a Breeder Custodian in the past, please contact the breeding department directly for more information.
