I happen to notice people getting upset even when the handler was doing the 
right thing in correcting the dogs for misbehaving.
I believe that we forget that we can't take the dog out of the guide dog.
Many times dogs communicate with each other and we have no clue whats 
happening until something jumps off.

Dar- I know what you mean about the out of control dogs. Handlers were
talking on their phones, or with other people who they were traveling with
and not paying attention to what was going on around them or to what their
dogs were doing. My girl was attacked by another guide dog while we were
trying to exit an elevator and she had to defend herself. SE was notified of
the incident and the other dogs school was told about the issue.

this was my first time for convention, I tried hard keeping my dog in
control, where when he learned that dogs were groweling at him he would
growel back.
he got corrected, where in his mind he wanted to play.
Some of the dogs were so out of hand I would scream.
When a person knows their dog will do this every time they are around large
groups of dogs, they should let the school know, or not bring the dog.
I spoke to seeing eye about this, saying that my dog did join in but at no
time did he jump on any dog.
I had helpers tell me it wasn't my dog it was the persons dog.
I will not put up with this kind of foolishness.
I was shown how to keep the collar up under chin then correct.
Now his hotel work wow.
he would be given a command, then seeing something he wanted to go to he
would take off and take me with him.
At no time could I know this hotel.
I never did get it figured out.
At the banquet his paw did get stepped on where he did limp.
Another lady did share this with me.
His room manners were wonderful.
the noise of the water fall in front was so loud I would get disoriented.
I had to ask staff to help me out with the dog.
I don't live back east, so to have the humidity blast you in the face as you
went out was unreal.
I loved the days when it wasn't bad at all going out.
For me it was hard to give a command inside the building.
I felt the staff were wonderful.
Now the air conditioners cause my hip to hurt so bad I would cry.
I had to get used to the loud noise.
I can handle a crowd sitting as we did, where to have all of this talking in
the lobby is another matter.
Would I go again, yes, to help out Montana.
He traveled well going and coming.
