The lady sounds very positive about me having the pup. She has been breeding German Shepherds for over 20 years, and he is the first blind pup she has had! Some people were saying that it was "only right" to euthanise him, but she won't. She wants him to have a chance!
Uhh....the coffee table will have to go. I handmade it, and it's a very unique, tree stump table!!
Training: Making a home base. I may only let him be in the upstairs, therefore the door should be home base. If he gets confused, I can take him to home base, and we can do it all over again.
Sound: I'll get Gurgi in on this one. Bells! Who doesn't love bells? He'll be able to hear Gurgi.
Smell: Anything in the "danger" zone I will have a soft scent like vanilla on it, so he knows there is something there!
More training: Dogs are smart. Especially german shepherds. He'll be taught words like step up, sit, stay, wait, easy, down, left, right, etc.
Outdoors: For walking, it will be a bit more difficult... But once he knows where I am, he shouldn't worry about wandering into me or anything. Dogs are good for that (sometimes!). Gurgi may also be "tethered" to him, while on walks... Meaning that lovely short clasp/rope that allows you to walk two dogs safely on one leash? We might try it.
Furniture: don't touch anything. Leave it. >.>
