Blind people have travelled with dogs as companions and protectors for thousands of years. As far as we know, the first person to train dogs, specifically to guide the blind, was Johann Klein, who founded the Institute for the Blind in Vienna. He published a textbook on how to train and use a guide dog, back in 1819.

The first systematic training of dogs as companions and guides for people who had lost their sight, began after the World War I. A specialised school dedicated entirely to training Guide Dogs was founded in Germany to help rehabilitate many thousands of people blinded during the war.

By 1925, the success of this school supported by the German Red Cross received international acclaim.

An American living in Switzerland, Mrs. Dorothy Eustis, who specialized in breeding and training of dogs for police work, visited the German  school. She was very impressed and wrote an article for the influential Saturday Evening Post. In 1929 she assisted a young blind American to travel to Switzerland and acquire a dog. Finally, with the support of Mrs. Eustis a Guide dog school was founded in New Jersey: two of the graduates of a Lausanne school went to America, one went to Italy and another one went to work in a Guide Dog school that already existed in Great Britain. It is noteworthy that a Russian emigrant officer Captain Nikolai Liakhoff was instrumental in setting Guide Dog training in Great Britain.
