Sessions Aimed to Combat Exclusionary Attitudes with Guide Dogs
This week we visited the pupils of Primary School of Fóti út. The children welcomed us very kindly and enthusiastically. They sat around our trainer colleague and her puppy-in-training, Fiji, and they were listening carefully what one needs to know about guide dogs and how to help the visually impaired. Then they gave better and better answers to even tricky questions, such as whether a guide dog can enter with his owner to a restaurant or hospital, or whether a guide dog has to wear a muzzle. Those who gave right answers received a cute Baráthegyi badge as a gift.
Then, of course, the pupils could try out with the help of Fiji what it is like to walk blindfolded with a guide dog.
Besides Fidzsi, the Labrador puppy Gordon, who came to the school with his volunteer raiser had a huge success and got a lot of stroking,
Thank you very much to everyone this joyful afternoon!
