Accessible World You and Your Guide Dog presents Retirement or the passing of your Guide Dog with Michele Drolet Hosted on Wednesday, October 13, 2010

There comes a time in the life of every dog guide team when it becomes clear that this special partnership will soon end. The universal question for dog guide handlers is, "how, and when to retire a dog guide." The bond created between a dog guide and handler is one that can never be replicated no matter how much we wish it could be otherwise. The relationship between the two which began as a tentative bond and gradually grew into acceptance based on great love is forged over many years. A smooth-working relationship is based on experience resulting in memories for a lifetime.
