Okay, so a few times a month, emails come into the list, from people
asking about which guide dog school the listers would recommend they
attend or avoid.
Would it be possible to have someone or a group of people comprise a
list of the various guide dog schools in the US and there most notable
qualities and most undesirable qualities? It would be nice to just
access a website or document with this information rather than having
to look at several different websites, make several different phone
calls, and send a handful of emails. This would at least make it
easier to narrow down potential schools to two or three, then do some
further investigation.
I also think that it would make people aware that there are different
kinds of guide dog programs to choose from. Some people don't even
know that certain schools exist.
I understand that this would be very subjective as for what people
think are desirable or undesirable. Also, schools change training
methods, breeds in training, and other things from time to time, so
this list would have to be updated.
It would be nice if the old guide dog school survey would be updated,
but where's the progress on that?
What do you guys think?
