Gives an excellent history of how Guide Dogs was started, and has other interesting information.

Many specific details on the genetics, training, 4-H project coordination, and so forth. Includes a history of the organization.

Harrington, Paula. Looking ahead: Guide Dogs for the Blind. 1st ed. San Rafael, CA: Guide Dogs for the Blind, c1990.

This one is sort of a "coffee table" book; lots of nice color photographs, and it covers the history of Guide Dogs, the training (both for the dog and the blind person), the 4-H puppy raisers, and lots of other stuff.
