Guide dog teams residing in Hawaii get together once a month to share experiences, learn about various training centers and participate in planned group activities. All handlers value their partner and share many successes and challenges that only another guide dog handler can understand.
Our Guide Dogs 808’s Hero Pledge:
- Honor my guide dog and make sure that his welfare is a priority.
- Engage in on-going education and strive for continuous improvement in my working relationship with my guide dog.
- Refrain from criticism or mean-spirited discussion on the handling ability of others, or the quality of the dog.
- Observe the rules and training techniques to maintain full control of my guide dog to promote the general safety and well-being of my team and the public.
