Graduation Ceremonies

At the end of each class, Guide Dogs of America holds a Graduation and Awards Ceremony to honor the guide dog recipients of the current class, the Sponsors and Puppy Raisers, and all who have contributed to the success of the class.

The Graduation Ceremony starts at 10:00 am and is held in an outdoor setting under an awning. Each class has 8-10 students who may talk about their training experiences, along with the puppy raisers who fostered their dog. Puppies-in-training are in attendance along with some working guide dogs. GDA merchandise is available. A reception and tours are held immediately following the ceremony. Attendance is free and all are welcome.
