About

Client Drivers use Leader Dog vehicles to provide safe transportation for Leader Dog clients who are blind and visually impaired to and from the Leader Dog campus. This travel often includes guide dogs. Volunteers also transport board members, seminar attendees and other guests with or without dogs. Travel includes picking up and dropping off clients and guests at airports, other transportation centers (bus, train) and local businesses. Drivers do more than just provide transportation - they must also escort clients through airport security and to their gate, problem solve if a flight is delayed or cancelled and help put our clients at ease under stressful travel situations. This is a multi-faceted role requiring complex training and shadowing.
