The Guide Dogs of the Blind of Ile-de-France work hand in hand to improve the autonomy of visually impaired people by providing guide dogs free of charge. This year, we are participating in the Paris Animal Show! For the occasion, we will have the chance to present the work we do with guide dogs. This year's programme includes: 1. An introduction to the basics of guide dog training. We educate our dogs on the basis of positive teaching! Because even if he is a guide dog, our animal is above all a companion dog. 2. A demonstration, with a cane, by our educator and then, you will a condensed version of what a guide dog in harness is all about. Alexiane will be put to the test and will have to overcome obstacles representing the difficulties of everyday life. This will be an opportunity to see a guide dog in action! 3. You will have time to talk with Alexiane. Don't hesitate to ask her questions, she will be happy to answer them!
