Together with our demo-guide-dog, Dió and the two student-guide-dog Bodza and Ebu, we made a visit at the Herman Ottó Elementary School in Alsózsolca, where we kept sensitization training in cooperation with colleagues from the Association for Disabled People and Friends of Miskolc. The topics of the day were tolerance and attentiveness to others.
Upper elementary class students could learn a lot of new information about responsible pet ownership and guide-dogs from Piroska Komondi’s lecture who is our professional leader. Inter alia: only 1% of the blind society in Hungary is aided by dog-guidance even though it means a much more effective mean of support than any inert object. Students could even experience this while trying out how it feels to walk blindfolded with a guide-dog. In this practice our trainer, Katalin Lékáné Viszokai (Katica) was for our help. We would like to hereby thank you again for the invitation, this was a very fun and informative morning we spent together.
