When a dog replaces eyesight

There are people to whom the dog replaces … eyesight. Perhaps you rarely see such people on the street. Still would! In Russia and on the territory of the former Soviet republics there is only one (!) School for the restoration of the working ability of the blind and for the training of guide dogs of the All-Russian Society of the Blind. It is located in the village of Kupavna near Moscow. Real enthusiasts of their hard work work here.

Labrador Yoga – Scotland Yard’s best nose

In the 1960s, Sherlock Holmes himself would envy the fame of the Labrador Yoga from Scotland Yard. The dog could smell drugs even under water. Sergeant Douglas Shearn, who worked with Yoga, had every reason to be proud of his partner. In 1971, an agent reported that a ship loaded with opium was arriving in London.

When the young dog was first taken to Continue reading

Sun Dog – Specialty Dog Therapists

Therapeutic dogs are a unique means of rehabilitation for children with developmental disabilities. The use of dog therapists – canis therapy – is aimed at solving the problems of integration and social adaptation of children with disabilities. This direction has a rich history abroad, but in Russia it has appeared relatively recently and is actively developing. At our Center, the first dog therapist was trained in 2003.
Canis therapy in our country does not yet have an official status and legislatively established criteria for the selection, training and use of dog therapists, as well as the training of specialists in this field. In our work, we are guided by the Canis Therapist Code of Ethics.
We call canis therapy classes with specially trained dogs aimed at correcting, rehabilitating and socially Continue reading
