> So here are my questions:
> 1. There is just one guide dog school in India called the 'Drushti Guide Dog
> School. It was founded in 2005, but there is absolutely no information about
> it online apart from that. I was hoping someone has visited or has some
> information about it?
Poonam welcome. Does the school have contact information at all on line? You might want to consider calling them.

> 2. Anyone been to India with their guide dog? Do describe your experience. I
> have read one popularized article, but that's all.
> I don’t know what the quarantine laws of India are, and it is an interesting question.

> 3. One problem I am having, apart from others in my country, is that there
> are packs of stray dogs running about. When I was a sighted person, I did
> own a dog and these packs of dogs would attack him whenever we went for a
> walk. I used to throw or rather pretend to throw pebbles at them before they
> ran away before. Keeping this in mind, how do I deal with them? Has anyone
> had such an experience?
> A number of people have had problems with dogs, probably some being stray, but I have never heard of anyone dealing with this particular problem. This might be one of the advantages of going to the school that is located in India. This sounds like a difficult problem.

> 4. Is it possible to get a dog transported from another country to mine? 
> If yes, how much would I need to pay, if anything and how would I go about
> training for myself?
> 5. How difficult is it to train your own guide dog? I know it is not
> strictly reccomended, but i'd like to give it a try and want to know if any
> of you have tried.
> A number of people on the list have trained their own dogs, so I am sure they will weigh in on the topic.
