It isn't always an option to get sighted help. There are times when it is helpful, though, because they can more readily explain to you very complicated intersections. The dog may learn it faster, too, if you are able to pattern it without having to do multiple c hoice. But still, the way I always learn new surroundings is start small and gradually work my way to Point B from Point A. If I can get good instructions, so much the better. Then, after I've learned the route I am using, I branch out to something else. I did have someone come and help me in Leon a little when I was in Leon, Iowa, because it was a little bit country there. I did not do that here, except I was having problems with a new dog I got once and so I had my rehab counselor come help me with it.
