Training guide dogs takes years of work, short documentary shows
Our Ottawa, CBC Television's weekly magazine program, airs Saturday, Sunday, Monday
A guide dog is more than a furry companion; they're a lifeline — and it takes years of training before their owners are allowed to take the leash.
Meet Tucker and his trainer, and see how this playful little pup transforms into a second pair of eyes.
The short documentary in the video player above was produced by two Carleton University students — Fangliang Xu and Martha Darby — who have since graduated.
