Guide Dogs & Service Animals

Theresa Stern with her guide dog, Wills

Blind People and people with severe sight disabilities rely either on guide dogs or the often seen white canes to replace the function of eyes in sighted persons. We host Theresa Stern from Guide Dogs for the Blind to talk about this most valuable resource and the legal rights of the owners of these animals. What goes into training a guide dog?  How to acquire one?  What’s the difference between a guide dog and an emotional support animal?  What should a person should do when a landlord refuses to allow a blind person to have a guide dog in a rented residence?

These and other questions answered in this informative discussion.

Produced and Hosted by Eddie Ytuarte.
