Guide dog learns the art of social distancing

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Getting out and about in Wellington is a little different this year with people having to adapt to social distancing. But it’s not just humans learning new norms.
Guide dog Pedro has also had to learn some new rules.
Genevieve McLauchlan, an Upper Hutt local, gets around in a motorised wheelchair with the support of Pedro.
Genevieve has Cerebral Palsy and vision loss as the result of an injury, so relies on Pedro’s guidance.
She is grateful for how Pedro quickly learned to move away from people and social distance. Pedro has also learned to work with Genevieve’s wheelchair. When she was first paired with a dog in 1998 by Blind Low Vision NZ (formerly The Blind Foundation), it was the first time in New Zealand, possibly the world, that a guide dog was working alongside a wheelchair.

Don't forget the Blind Week Appeal is on October 16 and 17.
