Guide Dogs Queensland is today training pups to board a plane and find their handler's seat.

The organisation is using international guide dogs day to highlight issues facing their clients.

Spokesman Matthew Barwick says training dogs on planes has become important with more blind people flying.

"The dogs will actually locate the seat they need to go to and actually get their handler to sit down and then they'll be placed at the feet of the handler," he said.

"It's great experience for them because more and more of our clients are actually travelling around the world and around Australia both for work and for leisure."

However, Mr Barwick says Guide Dogs Queensland clients are being turned away from businesses elsewhere.

He says Queenslanders are being denied access to restaurants and shops with their dogs almost once a month.

"Particularly when you're getting into the hospitality trades, people are just concerned about dogs being around areas where there are food," he said.

"But the thing is that our dogs are very highly trained.

"They're trained not to be distracted by food, they don't go and get in the road of people."
