3. One fact I learnt was that guide dogs aren’t like normal dogs. Guide dogs are taken practically everywhere the owner goes, and cant leave them left alone within 2 hours a a day.
Another fact I learnt was that guide dogs go to special puppy training classes which is not the easiest job, and it is not cheap. But people pay 25 000 dollars to help breed and train these dogs.
The last fact I learnt was that if you want to help be a member and help breed and train guide dogs yourself, you have to get a police check, and make sure your backyard (garden) has no poisonous plants.
2. An understanding I now know about guide dogs is, it is common that you can only spend 1 and a half years them.
Another understanding I have is that guide dogs need to understand commands. Such as sit, come, stay, etc.
1. One question I still have is: Why do people have to bring their guide dogs everywhere with them and cant leave them alone for 2 hours?
(I also have more questions but I would like to put one more: Why do people have to leave their guide dogs after 1 and a half years?)
This BTN story was about guide dogs and their and the owners lives. It was talking about how guide dogs lives are and what they do. Guide dogs can be with it’s owners for only 1 and a half years. Also guide dogs aren’t like other normal dogs, they cant be left alone for 2 hours a day, and they have to be taken with it’s owner mainly everywhere they go. People have paid 25 000 dollars to help breed and train guide dogs, and if they want to be apart and be a member, they have to get a police check, and make sure they have a safe and suitable house, and also make sure that they have no poisonous plants in there backyard (garden)
