Animal Arts was engaged by Leader Dogs for the Blind to assess their current campus. Our focus was on renovating the existing kennel facility to support Leader Dogs as they move toward a more interactive and stimulating dog training program. 

The Master Plan for the proposed 60,000 square-foot facility included a five-part strategy: creation of low-stress kennel villages, construction of open-air covered dog play and relief balconies, relocation of the expanded veterinary medical facility to a central “control” position, creation of a public-friendly lobby and puppy adoption pavilion, and design of a directional, multi-sensory spine to link the campus together.
