Doug, already good-sized but still gangly, is in the early stage of learning to be a guide dog and must adhere to restrictions such as staying off the furniture. She was placed in a Canadian guide dog program based in Ottawa. There are also times his harness comes off and he is allowed to play with other dogs, including her parents’ two chocolate Labs and sometimes other guide dogs. What do people need to know if they want to inquire about getting a guide dog through the program? Anyone interested in applying for a guide dog can visit www.GuidingEyes.org to apply, or contact the Admissions Department at any time with questions.
