Members 

IGDF members are guide dog organisations that have produced more than 10 guide dog teams and have been accredited against the internationally recognised IGDF standards.  All members are accredited when they apply for membership, and every 5 years thereafter, to ensure they continue to meet the IGDF standards and can therefore retain IGDF membership.

All current IGDF members can be found on the closest guide dog provider page of this website.
