[nagdu] Skipping driveways

I forgot...some people have their dog stop at each driveway just like it is 
a street.  Personally, I find this annoying and don't do it.  Of course if 
there is a car backing out of a driveway, the dog will stop.

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?
