Guide Dogs Attacked
Take the Lead!
Guide Dogs Tasmania is extremely frustrated that within the space of a week, two of our Guide Dogs have been attacked by pet dogs not being controlled by their owners; one off lead and the other outside of an unsecured yard. We remind the public to please – Take the Lead – control your pet dogs.
The Guide Dogs are physically well now, but it remains to be seen what these incidents will do to their confidence, and ultimately, their capacity to continue guiding.
