The Samsung Group has a stake in almost every corner of the market, from smartphones and TVs to pharmaceuticals and cargo ships. Galaxy smartphone users are generally unaware of the company’s reach, but Samsung is a conglomerate that enables many technological advances within and outside South Korea.

However, not everything Samsung does is related to modern technology, and most customers may not be aware that the Samsung Group trains guide dogs for people with visual impairments. Samsung leads the only guide dog training institute in South Korea that has been certified by the International Federation of Guide Dogs in the UK.

Today, the Samsung Guide Dog School, located in Yongin, about 50 km south of Seoul, held a ceremony for eight service dogs that were delivered to their visually impaired partners. The dogs were trained for two years and passed rigorous tests. Each of them will now act as friends and eyes for blind partners for the next ~seven years. (through Korea Bizwire)

At the same time, the company’s Guide Dog School also holds retirement ceremonies for its six service dogs, all of whom have served their partners for six to eight years. With their work done, the six retired dogs can now enjoy life as a carefree pet. That’s great, Samsung!
