Choosing a Group Class for Blind Dogs

By Kate Naito

Kate is a positive dog trainer with Doggie Academy in Brooklyn, NY. She has a soft spot for dogs with special needs and currently has two visually impaired dogs.

Group training classes can be an excellent place for a blind dog owner to get professional advice, and a well-designed class can help blind dogs gain confidence. Even fully blind dogs can enjoy manners, tricks, or sports classes, but before you sign up to one, consider contacting the trainer to ask these important questions:

  1. Ask the trainer how she would modify the class to fit your blind dog. There is no “right” answer, but it’s good to know that the trainer is willing to adjust the space or the training techniques if needed.

  2. Ask about the number of dogs in each class, the size of the room, and the number of trainers. There is no hard rule, but you want to make sure the trainer will have the ability to address your needs. Personally, I limit my classes to 6 dogs and have one assistant trainer helping out.

  3. Ask if the trainer uses positive training methods (which I’d recommend for blind dogs), and if she says yes, ask what equipment she recommends. If the trainer suggests a choke or prong collar, this is not positive training. Front- or back-clip body harnesses, flat or martingale collars, and halter-type head collars are the typical tools of positive trainers.

  4. Ask if you may use a clicker in class, even if you don’t plan to. If the trainer says no, it may show that she either isn’t terribly flexible or that she prefers to use more punishment-based methods.

  5. Ask if off-leash play is a component of the class. This could be either a useful thing (as professionally supervised play is safer than the dog park), or a waste of your time (if your blind dog is not comfortable around playing pups).

Stay tuned for my next installment, which will introduce the kinds of group classes that are appropriate for blind dogs.

 

More important Training Tips from the team….

By Andrea Smith

We would first like to say blindness is not a drain, but an adjustment. The following tips should help you with a visually impaired dog. These can include owners, trainers, or shelter volunteers in charge of a blind canine.

  1. Accept the Despair- Be aware that dogs that are blind will experience a stage of depression. Notice they will demonstrate a lack of energy and a refusal to get excited about anything. This may be a shorter period of time if there is no pain and they are healthy. You may also go through some grieving. Acknowledge the need of time for it. You may get 80% of your dog back in 3-5 months.
  1. Continue the Routine-  By upsetting the normal routine it will extend the depression period. You should still take your pet in the car when you travel. During their sad time allow them to lounge in the car with the windows open to feel the breeze and to sniff the aromas. When it is quiet, drive to their favorite dog park. Encourage interaction with other playful and friendly dogs.

  2. Be cautious-  Inform owners about the body language of canines.

  3. No Assistance- There is no need for you to pick up a small dog and carry it up stairs or from the curb. They already remember this familiar territory. If someone keeps picking them up, the dog will have difficulty retracing his steps. Be patient use a gentle tones and an affectionate touch. You can also use a leash. In time they will become confident of their independence

  4. The Nose Knows-  Help them by using signals in order for them to use their nose to solve problems. Drop little bits of food on the floor and tap your finger on the ground to coax your pet over. This reinforcement will train them to know you want something. You can also snap your fingers.

  5. New Commands- This should be taught on a leash. Select a word that means stop and in addition use a tactile cue to instill the command. Two words ones are usually confusing.

There is no definite period when a dog will be completely confident but it depends on the dedication of its owner.

Tips and Tricks For living with your amazing dog!!!
By Tamara Miller
Tamara has been involved in rescue for over 15 years and has a special focus on Weimaraner rescue (with tw oof her own rescued weims) and dogs with special needs. She is a foster parent for BDRA.

I am already thinking of the winter Holidays and how to treat my fur babies and all their friends this year…I came across this awesome recipe and gift all in one for the crafty among us!!! sooo cute….

Dog Cookie Jar Mix
Jane Lake
Layered Dog Cookies in a Jar – Dog Biscuits Jar Mix Recipe
by Jane Lake

My two shadows, a pair of shelties, were the taste-testers once again for this dog biscuit recipe. And, yes, once again, I tried it with them! In fact, we tried several versions until we had tweaked the ingredients to provide the best taste combination in a jar mix recipe. These cookies are more flavorful than you might suppose; the boullion granules lend a beef or chicken base, but are not overpowering, while the parmesan and garlic are well represented too. Very intriguing for my dogs — who were sniffing the air all around the oven once they realized that the baking was for them!

 

The recipe for the dog cookies, plus the directions to bake them, are all included on the free printable jar label. Just print, cut out, and fold as you would a four fold card – in half, then in half again, so that the photo is on the front and the recipe and instructions are inside. On the back, you’ll have a “To” and “From” tag for gift giving.

Ingredients:

1 cup unbleached or whole wheat flour
1 cup of oatmeal, blended into flour
½ cup cornmeal
2 tsps beef or chicken boullion granules
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup skim milk powder
½ cup grated parmesan cheese (I used the grated parmesan that is commercially made to sprinkle on pasta)
¼ cup (approximately) of flour, or enough to fill a one quart jar
optional – cookie cutter in a dog bone shape

Dog Biscuits:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 250° farenheit.

Empty jar mix into a bowl. Stir together two eggs and 1 cup of hot water and add to mix. Combine with a fork until a stiff dough forms. Add a little flour or water if dough is too sticky or too dry to work.

Roll out dough on floured board to ½ inch thickness. Dip cookie cutters in flour before cutting out each cookie. A bone shaped cutter is preferred, but any shape will do. Re-roll the leftovers and cut as many cookies as possible.

You can place cookies close together on a baking sheet as they will not spread while baking. Bake for about 90 minutes, or until cookies are dry and hard, turning pan around at half time to ensure even cooking. You can turn off the heat, but leave the cookies in the oven to dry out without further cooking if necessary. Dog cookies are usually baked until they are hard and crunchy. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight jar.

Dog Cookie Jar Decoration

Use a funnel to layer ingredients, in the order given, in a one quart jar, packing each layer firmly with the back of a spoon.

To make the jar decoration shown, fasten a 6″ circle of burlap or canvas to the jar lid with a rubber band. Tie a long tartan ribbon around the rubber band leaving both ends loose.

Fold into a small card. Punch a hole in the top left corner. Thread the ribbon through the hole and knot to secure.

Add the cookie cutter by circling it around the middle with first one end of the ribbon, then the other, with each end going in opposite directions so you can tie them together. Finally, form a small bow then trim the ends evenly, using a slanted cut to help prevent fraying.

Since we are being Crafty- how about some new SWEATERS????

I personally have Weimaraners so this adorable DIY dog sweater would be a bit on the small side for them- but if your dogs are anything like MINE when it comes to DESTROYING sweaters and collars then you know how expensive they can be- I thought this was GENIUS for our smaller furry friends out there!! Just grab an old sweater- cut off the sleeve- cut some arm holes….maybe do a little sewing around the edges if you like….. and go!!

AVAILABLE DOGS- CHECK OUT THESE AMAZING BDRA DOGS LOOKING FOR THEIR FOREVER HOMES!
By:Dena Desantis
Dena has owned several dogs throughout her life, including dogs who lost their vision to old age

9b91bed7-e26c-4329-ab13-432f4fa21e7f

Dallas

Joining the BRDA family in June 2015, Dallas grew up in an shelter. Placed there at 9 weeks, he resided at the shelter for over 4 years, losing his right eye following a diagnosis of dry eye. Dallas has dry eye in his left eye but doesn’t seem to have any vision impairment in this eye and no other health issues. He takes his drops patiently and does not struggle, as a matter of fact, he almost melts into his foster mom’s hand when rubbing the drops into his eye.

Dallas, a medium sized Australian Shepherd Mix, arrived to the shelter with 2 siblings. While they were adopted out, Dallas did not meet his forever family there. When he arrived at his foster home, he had some difficulty recognizing that it was OK to sleep in an open space as he was used to sleeping in a penned in area. With love and patience, Dallas is quickly learning house manners and leash training. It is evident that these are new skills for this happy, lovable boy so his forever family will need to be understanding and willing to continue to reinforce appropriate behaviors with Dallas
.556e70c4-25f0-4274-9990-f82fe52f1e26

Described by his foster mom as “the happiest dog I’ve ever seen,” Dallas likes to play chase with the cats in the residence and is good with children as well as other dogs. He shares well and enjoys playing with the other dogs. Dallas likes squeaky toys, antlers, and affection! This sweet, loving boy who listens well and “always looks like he’s laughing” eagerly accepts kisses and hugs from his foster family.

If you’ve got room in your home and heart for this amazing, happy dog, please contact BDRA.

BDRA Fund Raiser

Fundraisers- How you can help support Blind Dog Rescue Alliance
BDRA has many ways to help support the cause- here is a short list of some of our upcoming and current fundraisers…..

BDRA fundraising is a very important part of rescuing, fostering, and providing fur ever homes for our puppies and older dogs. Many dogs come to us with medical problems and fundraising provides the money to cover these costs.

There are several ways to keep funds rolling in. You can go to the BDRA web site (www.blinddogrescue.com) and click on the Shop tab. There you will find a long list of partners who will give a percentage of all purchases back to BDRA. Just make sure to use the code provided when you make your purchase. You can also help by supporting the Internet fundraisers that are ongoing. AND you can help by sharing all information with family and friends through social media sites.

When you shop at AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to Blind Dog Rescue Alliance. http://smile.amazon.com/ch/27-0526851 support us every time you shop.

This is an ongoing fundraiser.

Bartley’s has partnered with Blind Dog Rescue Alliance to sponsor Grayson. Grayson is a sweet, completely blind senior Australian Shepherd mix who was found wandering the streets in Louisiana.
Grayson is in a temporary foster home, where he is getting the medical care he needs. He will be up for adoption shortly.
Your Bartley’s purchase helps pay for his care- thank you! www.bartleysfordogs.com

Volunteer Spotlight
Meet our special volunteers
By:Dena Desantis

Meet our New BDRA Vice President

Changes are afoot this month in BDRA! We are welcoming some fantastic new board members and we look forward to introducing them to you over the next few issues. This month we want to introduce our BRAND NEW VICE PRESIDENT Deb Marsh!!!!
Deb Marsh

Our New Vice President looks forward to growing the BDRA volunteer base in order to continue serving as many dogs as possible. She looks forward to facilitating opportunities for volunteers to help out with different teams, based on both individual interests and abilities.

Having been involved with BDRA for 5 years before accepting the nomination for Vice President, Deb first joined BDRA after working in Husky rescue with BDRA founders Eric and Karen. Having fostered for Husky rescue, Deb first transported for BDRA but quickly decided to foster a blind and deaf Australia Shepherd named Seth. As with all her BDRA commitments, Deb dove right in!

Deb has found great satisfaction from helping our sight impaired dogs to find love and forever home. She enjoys educating people who see blind dogs as having a disability to help them understand that they are normal dogs capable of acting like regular, sighted dogs. Deb has always loved animals and has a special affinity for Huskies. She has been involved with racing and breeding Huskies and has been a charter member of the Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain.

Quick to note that she has “always been attracted to animals” and has found that helping animals has made a profound difference in her life. Deb is honored to be elected as BDRA’s Vice President and looks forward to keeping the organization running smoothly. She points out that there is “something special about them [blind dogs] that makes me feel good.”

Deb Marsh is a US Air Force Veteran, serving our country for over 20 years. She currently works with government contracts and has earned her teaching degree from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. A bona-fide leader, Deb is certain to make great things happen in the months and years to come!
Join us in a warm WELCOME and THANK YOU to Deb!!!!

Rainbow Bridge- Remembering those who have gone before us…..

Stewie-
Stewie came to stay with Volunteer Lisa Dillard in November of 2014. He traveled all the way from New York to Tennessee. He had had a whole mess of health and psychological problems. In the last several weeks/months those problems became too much for him and his quality of life was non existent. Today we said goodbye and gave Stewie the last gift of love we could. I held him and told him he was loved as he passed. Our hearts are broken but Stewie is now free. We will see him again one day at the rainbow bridge.
