“You don’t want them taking something off a blind person’s plate” Clay said The dogs also are taught obedience including not to jump on people and to obey basic commands “We don’t do anything tricky” Laylandcr said “We leave that to Pilot” The families of the 4-Hcrs who take the dogs pay for the dogs’ food but receive compensation for all veterinary expenses When they go to Pilot the training for the dogs becomes tougher First they are in quarantine for two weeks to determine if they’re healthy Then they spend four to six months working with a trainer Then they’re matched with a blind person and spend another month learning to live with that person So far the dogs in the Neosho program have done well The first four Labradors successfully completed the training and are now with blind people Three of the four boxers the group next received arc still in the training program but one was excluded because of a hip deformity The dogs also have attracted attention in the area To become used to people the dogs are taken into local McDonald’s and K-Mart stores The dogs wear jackets identifying them as “guide dogs in training” Laylandcr said “Shoppers just stop and watch us” Laylandcr
