Question


Are there any fatawa written on guide dogs for the blind and therapy dogs?


 


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


 


The Ulama have written on this topic. They have mentioned that it is permissible to keep guide dogs for the blind and it is impermissible to keep dogs for therapy. Another animal should be used for therapy instead. Please see the following fatwas for more detail:
