The tasks of a guide dog
Our guide dogs have a variety of talents. They learn to avoid obstacles, or to signal the presence of an object by standing still. While the guide dog owner acts as the navigator, maintaining the team’s overall direction, the dog works as the pilot, ensuring the team’s safety. The dog also helps a client to identify important everyday objects, e.g. pedestrian crossings, traffic lights, available seats, cash machines and even the doors to houses or public transport.
