NAGDU -- NAGDU Mailing List, the National Association of Guide Dog Users


English (USA)

The purpose of this list is to provide guide dog users and other
interested people with an easy way to access information about guide dogs
and to assist people in dealing with issues related to working with a
guide dog. Topics can include but are not limitted to the benefits and
disadvantages of using a guide dog, guide dog training programs, care,
equipment, puppy raising, training, public access issues, legislation as it affects
guide dog users, and public attitudes about guide dogs and their use by the
blind as well as the activities of the National association of guide Dog
Users. If you are trying to contact your puppy raiser, or fellow classmates
from your guide dog training program please feel free to post contact information here
but we would ask that such posts be kept to a minimum, and any and all
non-guide dog-related correspondence be kept private, or posted to a more
appropriate list. We would like to allow for open questions, although we will
not permit an endless debate between guide dog users and cane users over
the merits of either cane or dog as a mobility tool. We believe each has
its place. Likewise we will not condone the use of inappropriate language.
There will also be occasional posts concerning issues of major importance to
the blind as well as announcements concerning activities of the national
Association of Guide dog Users, and The National Federation of the Blind.

This list is co-moderated by Marsha Drenth and Cindy Ray.
They will handle questions and problems concerning the content of the list.
