OAGDU -- Ohio Association of Guide Dog Users List


English (USA)

Welcome to the Ohio Association of Guide Dog Users (OAGDU) list!
This is a list for Ohioans who are current guide dog users, have had guide dogs, or are interested in getting a guide dog. Anyone who has an interest in guide dogs is also welcome to join. The purpose of this list is to provide guide dog users and other interested people with important information about guide dogs and to assist people in dealing with issues related to working with a guide dog.
Topics can include: the benefits and disadvantages of using a guide dog, guide dog training programs, care of a guide dog, equipment, puppy raising, training, public access issues, housing issues, and legislation as it affects guide dog users. We will also discuss OAGDU business, fundraising projects, advocacy work, and any other issues concerning guide and other service dogs. Please try to stay on topic with this list, guide dog and blindness related conversation only.
OAGDU is an affiliate division of the National Association of Guide Dog Users, and the National Federation of the Blind.
This list is moderated by LuAnn Bowers.
