Shadow — Training a Guide Dog for the Blind

Here is a video of one of my training sessions with my poodle, Shadow.

He has been in training with me for about 3 months (knowing only his name and “sit” when I got him) and will be given off to his new home in January. When I train with him, I am giving him commands such as “right and left” and asking him to find various things, plus expecting him to keep me out of danger. Other than that, I completely act as if I am blind and would run into people and other obstacles if he didn’t guide me around them. He is doing all of the work!
