To mark the start of the Chinese New Year, year of the Dog the children at Busy Bees Beverley today received a very special visit from a special guest. Timber the guide dog and his owner Paul, Timber is a very special dog as he acts as Paul’s eyes, as Paul is blind. The children had a great time meeting and petting Timber they got to hear about how Timber helps out and all the amazing things she does for Paul.

A guide dog is trained to:

  • walk centrally along the pavement whilst avoiding obstacles on the route
  • not to turn corners unless told to do so
  • stop at kerbs and steps
  • find doors, crossings and places which are visited regularly
  • judge height and width so you do not bump your head or shoulder
  • deal with traffic
  • guide blind people across the road safely.
