Navigating a dark world OccuPaws Guide Dog Association helps the blind
HELU WANG
Unified Newspaper Group

Stopping by curbs and steps, waiting at


the door and sitting under a chair are three
out of the 20 commands guide dogs have to
learn before working with people who are
blind.
Barb Schultze, president of the Madi-
son-based OccuPaws Guide Dog Associ-
ation, said the process of training a guide
dog is very challenging, and it can be up
to 18 months before theyre ready to help
blind people navigating the world safely.
To ensure their guide dogs have calm
personalities, OccuPaws only picks specif-
ic breeds like standard poodles, Labradors
and Golden Retrievers from breeders with
clear health histories going back several
generations. The dogs must even give up
some canine habits to become certified.
For example, as long as they have a har-
ness on, they are not allowed to play.
Volunteers begin training the puppies
at 8 weeks old, but almost half of the
dogs dont continue through the program
depending on health conditions, tempera-
ment and performance in training. To bet-
ter prepare the guide dogs for future work,
trainers have to rotate them so they shad-
ow another volunteer and experience being
with multiple families.
Marlette Larsen, a Verona resident and
vice president of OccuPaws, said its been
rewarding to work with the guide dogs and
help the blind navigate the routes to work
and shopping.
