Robbie and Charlie Kaman bred German Shepherd Dogs from exclusive East and West German bloodlines for stamina, health and intelligence. They gave these dogs to other guide dog organizations from 1960–1980, when they established Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation as a breeding and training organization, and placed the initial five Fidelco German Shepherd guide dogs.
Today, Fidelco Guide Dogs is a recognized leader in the guide dog industry and still the only guide dog organization to exclusively breed the German Shepherd Dog. More than 1,500 guide dogs have been placed throughout North America and in six Canadian provinces.
We are honored to continue the Robbie and Charlie’s legacy of powerfully transforming the lives of people who are blind.
