You could start out by using a cane to your left to get a feel for it, or if
you know it will be a left, you can start telling it "left, left" until you
get to the right turn. Then you really praise up the dog. Eventually you
won't have to even do that anymore.

Hi All,

This may be an odd question but I hope not. 
With a Guide Dog how do you know where exactly you are? For example right
now I know that there are 2 driveways then a stretch of sidewalk until I
turn to go up the hill to get to my apartment, however since dogs don't stop
at every driveway or alley how do you stay oriented to where you are when
using. Dog if you originally learned a route by using landmarks so to speak
such as driveways or alleys?
