Nope, not at all. Dogs are too stupid to take care of humans.

Hm..I don't know. Most likely, I'll try to deal on my own. But, it's possible, I would give it a try.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/25/06 - 1:41:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. They are trained well and loyal. I think I'd really need a dog outside of the house.

It'd be better than trusting a human to point me in the right directions. At least a dog doesn't think that leading a blind guy off a cliff is terribly funny.

That's true. I agree.

ha! thats true but its still funny to think of someone doing it, i no im so harsh. in RE somewhen we had to look up somehting in a bible and it said "if a blind man leads another blind man will they not both fall down into a ditch?" it made me crack up

i was hit by a truck for the local seeing eye dog training school. not like their truck hit my car, the truck backed into ME...knocked me right onto the ground! and then took off....a hit and run. i found it ironic. well, that and painful.

You would have to I guess.

You're kidding right?

Dogs have been used as seeing eye dogs and companions for the handicap for years!

I wouldn't hesitate to have one, were I blind.

13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/26/06 - 5:27:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would because they were trained for that purpose.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/26/06 - 12:08:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
These results don't count because the bliind people can't vote.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/26/06 - 12:39:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not really sure. Only if this dog leads me to a strip club every now and then.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/26/06 - 12:49:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think I would have to be trained to trust the dog.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 4/28/06 - 11:21:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
Those dogs are really smart and trained for it, so I would.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 4/28/06 - 5:47:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Absolutly.

I've carried many disabled people in my cab. The dogs are always well behaved and well trained. Their owners swear by them.

Dogs eat their own poo and hump each other's faces. If a human did this... I rest my case.

It might take a little getting used to. I mean, I know they're trained for all that stuff, but still. I mean, when you tell a dog "4th and Main", they're not gonna know where to go. Other than that though, I would really trust one.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 4/29/06 - 1:54:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes i love dogs!
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 4/29/06 - 6:11:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, NEVER.

You don't tell the dog "4th and Main". You still have to know where you're going. The dog keeps you from running into things, it doesn't (usually) know how to get you where you want to go.

Essentailly, the dog replaces the cane.

I've helped train the seeing eye dogs when they are in their first stage of training, and only the best of the best pass to the next stage. The ones that pass are completely reliable, I would trust one with my life.
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 5/3/06 - 6:20:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
uhh i would but ironically, im allergic to dogs

Dogs aren't stupid, but you might get an evil dog that hated you, and deliberatly led you into oncoming traffic . . or something.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 7/23/06 - 8:16:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
That's what they're trained for...what choice do I have, really?
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/1/06 - 4:09:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
what other option would you have?
