Hi, Amanda!
Everyone's questions might be a bit different, but if I had to do my first-timer questions over again, I would ask several or these questions:
Length of training?
In-home or in-class training?
training methods (traditional, positive reinforcement, clicker, combination?)
Follow-up visits?
How do they match the dogs?
Ownership policy?
If ownership is not granted, how much autonomy does an individual student have regarding food, medical care, activities for the dog in off-time, changing training, etc.?

Those are just a few... I'm sure I have more.

Hello guide dog users,
I am beginning to look at different guide dog schools and will be applying shortly. Is there a list of questions i should be asking them? I have some of my own but am curious as to how you decide which ones to apply to and choose. Have you applied to more than one school at a time? Thanks.
