International Guide Dog Day is dedicated to recognise the important role guide dogs play in assisting people who are blind or vision impaired, and the dedicated professionals who train them.

In 2015, we commemorated International Guide Dog Day for the first time and organised a GDAB Dog Challenge in celebration of it. The challenge consisted of a 1km obstacle walk for participants to embark on with their furry pups.
