Abstract:

Fewer than 1.5% [of the blind and visually impaired] use guide dogs as their basic means of mobility. One reason for this low percentage is the lack of information about these canine assistants. [The authors'] goal is to fill this information gap.-Introd. As [the authors'] originally envisioned this guide, it would be a resource for blind people considering partnership with guide dogs. [They] did not anticipate the interest shown by orientation and mobility instructors, rehabilitation counselors, disabled student officers, librarians and teachers of the blind and visually impaired. [They] hope the present edition will find an equally diversified readership ... To provide greater coverage, [they] are including the Canadian training programs in this edition.-Pref.
