Guide Dog Training update – Traffic Work
This week, Instructors Joel van Stavel and Karen Opie are training their dogs, Brinley, Edwin, Barley, and Bowie ‘traffic work’. This includes teaching the dogs to be aware of motor vehicles and to stop for cars in busy areas.
If you are in the Parkview or Oaklands areas, keep an eye out for our Guide Dogs in training, who will be navigating these areas.
Brinley, Edwin, Barley, and Bowie will also be graduating together with their new owners at the 7 April 2016 graduation, for which matching is currently underway. Matching is the process whereby our dogs in training and applicants are matched according to personality, temperament, and activity levels, so as to ensure a solid and long-lasting relationship.
