Abstract

Results of a study to measure compatibility and the success or failure of the relationship between a person and his or her first guide dog were published in the proceedings of the 11th International Mobility Conference (ref below). This presentation builds on these findings by dis- cussing how feelings at the end of the partnership affect the handlers’relationships with subsequent dogs, and shows trends in the dataset concerning multiple dog use. The effects of being without a dog, after experiencing guide dog mobility, on quality of life will also be presented.
