Okay, now before you start thinking I’m crazy, here me out. When we graduated from GDB, we were sent home with a few cards that we could give to taxi or bus drivers that described the law and what they are and aren’t allowed to do (not much). However, there is not something that one can easily take with them and hand out to people that feel like they must touch your dog, call your dog, or let their dog attack your dog. Therefore, I had this random idea the other day of making cards, the size of business cards, that describe why it is detrimental to a guide dog team to be distracted and what the law is. I haven’t exactly decided how I will do them but the thought just came to me a few days ago. I could make them using Microsoft Word and then buy business card stock and use the template and print them out. It wouldn’t be that hard, nor expensive, and I really do think it might be more effective than telling them.
What do you think?
