Community spirit

There is a great Irish word, meitheal, which refers to a co-operative system in Ireland of yesteryear where neighbours helped each other with farming work, especially at harvest time. The word captures the essence of what our organisation is about – COMMUNITY!

Every single person involved with IGDB makes a difference. From our Breeders, Home Socialisers, Puppy Raisers, Temporary Boarders, Trainers, Staff, Volunteers and Clients, each have a shared common objective: to change lives.

Luke & Kain

Luke is still non-verbal but when I see him smiling down at Kain it shows me he doesn’t need words to express how happy he is.

Kim & Jango

Meeting Jango was one of the best moments of my life. He’s a beautiful big cuddly dog with the personality to match. From the moment I met him I knew we were going to be best buddies.

Shauna & Esme

When I needed a hand, I found a paw.

Conor & Quelda

When Conor is with Quelda he smiles and is comfortable being out and about which is such an amazing gift – we never leave home without her. She has changed all of our lives.

Aran & Buttons

Being a Guide Dog Owner is such a privilege and positive experience. Buttons has enhanced my life in so many ways and I will always be grateful for that.
