(His Master’s eyes :)
In Brenles, near Moudon, the Labradors Retrievers of the Foundation For Guide Dogs are taught how to replace their master’s eyes.
(Puppy’s education and nutrition :)
Each year, 5 to 6 litters of Labrador retrievers are born to become excellent guide dogs. They stay at the Foundation with their mother during the first 9 weeks of life. They first get used to noises and objects of the daily life through games, and are then assessed against specific criteria.
Becoming a guide dog is a long and fascinating adventure. Several tens of thousands of neurones develop every minute in the brain of a puppy, from the very first weeks.
The Foundation for guide dogs have a deep understanding of this development. The nutritional contributions supplied to the mother and the nutritional contributions supplied to the puppy are the result of very well balanced formulas.
(Stay with foster family :)
The future guide dog lives with a foster family for a little over one year.
goes for alittlemore than a year in a foster family.
The puppy raiser is responsible for teaching his puppy good manners and basic obedience.
The foster family receives advanced nutrition, continuous support and guidance, and among other things, the dog is taught how to walk with a harness.
The final aim is to increase the mobility and the autonomy of the blind.
(Back to the Foundation and training.)
Once the grown puppy returns to the Foundation from his foster family, he is ready to start his training, not forgetting play time!
For two to three months the dog is taught by skilled instructors to safely guide a blind person through the complexities of pedestrian travel. The dog cannotread traffic lights, as he does not recognize red from green, but his skills include searching for a seat in a bus and avoiding obstacles such as curbs and stairs. The orders are given inItalian, which is the most understandable language fora dog.
At the end of the training period, the dog is evaluated to check if he is ready to become a professional guide.
(An essential companion :)
Every year, The Foundation gives 10 to 12 guide dogs to blind persons.
The guide dog allows a person affected by a visual deficiency to move quickly and safely.
A strong relationship of trust develops between the dog and his master.
Guide dogs also play an important role of social and professional integration. Their presence is emotionally important for the ones who need them the most in their daily life.
