Remember that the guide dog is responsible for leading someone who cannot see. The owner’s safety depends on his dog’s alertness and concentration.
-The Guide Dog should never be distracted from its duty.
-A guide dog is responsible for helping its handler safely cross a street, maneuver hallways or stairs.
-Calling out to a guide dog or intentionally obstructing its path can be dangerous for the team as it could break the dog’s concentration on its work.
-The Guide Dog is not to be touched or petted by anyone.
-A Guide Dog should never be offered food or other distracting treats.
-Do not offer the animal toys. For its safety the animal is only allowed to play with specific toys.
