Are guide dogs protective of their owners?
Re:Guide DogsPosted by EmergencyRoomNeuron on 4/16/2011 at 9:46 PM
Yes, to a certain degree. If a dog is too protective others may proseeve them as threatening, and that isn't good. Guide dog teems are ambasetors for the indevidual school and a threatening dog would reflect badly on that school. However, most dogs bond to their owner and do become somewhat protective.

What are some example of kylee being protective of you?
Re:Guide DogsPosted by Joe S on 4/17/2011 at 9:16 AM
I think that all depends, I know a situation when a dog guide user was mugged, the dog did not get involved. The user was pretty badly beaten up. The dog comforted the user or huddled with him and licked his wounds.
I know plenty that are protective of their user, but some are not.
Basically, it depends.

It would probably depend on the personality of the dog.

How strict if a guide dog's diet?

Getting a Guide dog is not taking the easy way out. You will be responsible for the dog. Feeding it, grooming it, playing with it, etc. i have one too, I have had her for six months now.
Guide Dogs have strict diets, no table scraps for them...Shouldn't let them eat what's on your plate when you are hungry, no ice cream ;) lol
They have strict Diets because they need to be in tip top shape so they can guide us. We have a certain weight range we have to keep them in. If we don't it will affect how they work and put added stress on their body. They eat dog food nothing special :)
