  1. Very Interesting. If fascinates me how the dog takes on the responsibility
    of caring for a human. How they can overcome instinctive behaviour is
    amazing. For example chasing birds. I own a 9mth black lab who would drag
    me into a pond to have a swim. Labs have only one weak point ,greed when it
    come to food. Its hard when those big eyes are looking up at you. Thank you
    for the video.

  2. Oh I agree so much! I have a 10yr black lab too, and my word, if there’s
    food about you just can’t get her eyes of it!

  3. I’m actually going to be training a puppy to be a guide dog real soon so
    its good to see what the pup will be doing in its near future!!

  4. It sure is a neat experience having a guide dog, one thing that people
    don’t realize is that the relationship between the human and dog is both
    ways. In order for my dog to do her job, I have also do mine. They need
    lots of attention and play time. Also, they’ll do anything for food. Thats
    pretty much all they ask for.

  5. I used to have a guide dog and we were taught not to stop on the up curb
    because you’re on a the road. Instead you feel the harness going up and a
    step later you walk up the curb. Still quite effective but I prefer this
    method as it gives more time to actually find the up curb

  6. lmao first expertvillage video i’ve seen where the comments aren’t just
    completely ripping it apart

  7. I got my guide dog Yasha from Guiding Eyes For The Blind. Not sure what you
    all tell the dog to go to the curb but I was trained to tell her “To The
    Curb”.

  8. The dog is not taught to listen for cars. When a blind or visually impaired
    person is training with a guide dog, it becomes their responsibility to
    know whether it is safe to cross. The dog is just used as a visual aid as I
    understand it.

  9. Listen to my story., When i got my lab puppy I used onlinedogtraining.us
    it’s an online do training programe wih excellent results, they have videos
    to help you out and sections just for helping you train your new puppy.
    Helped me in so many ways

  10. Interesting. I am not blind, but I have taught all my dogs to stop at the
    curb with the command “Road”. I stop at every single intersection. It
    confuses some drivers who stop to wait for me to cross, and then I stop
    when I have the right of way, but my dogs are never allowed to touch the
    street without a release. I figure some day I’ll have a dog off leash (by
    accident or on purpose), and not touching the road without a release will
    save their life.
