A few things to help you both have fun together:
幾樣事項幫助你和狗狗愉快生活


☉When training use sound like bells or a clicker as this will help him know where you are when his sight diminishes.
當牠視力減退時,使用鈴鐺或是響片訓練牠,讓牠知道你的位置在哪裡

☉Play with light colored toys - glow balls are good and make sure that you hit the ground with the toy so the dog can hear it. (Hunter chews a hole in his ball so he can hear the wind whistle as it goes by him.)
用顏色亮的玩具跟牠玩,顏色越鮮豔的球越好,而且要確定球落在牠附近的時候,試著把玩具敲打地面發出聲音,幫助狗狗確認玩具的位置(把球鑽一個洞,它就會發出聲音,牠會聽到球的位置)

☉Good toys are those that make a noise so the dog can follow the sound.
好玩具就是會有聲音,讓狗狗可以循聲遊戲

☉While the vision is still good, work with hand and voice commands that will teach directions. Voice commands come in handy later on when your dog can't find the toy and for lots of other instances.
如果狗狗視力還好時,你可以訓練牠熟悉一些聲音指令,當狗狗視力減弱的時候,你會發現這些指令會變得非常有用。

☉Watch you dog with unknown dogs as an unsighted dog can get hurt easily.
注意你的狗和陌生的狗接觸,沒有視力的狗狗比較容易會受傷

☉Do not leave your dog unattended in a crowd, especially where there are children. They do not know the dog cannot see and nervousness or fright could cause the dog to bark or nip if it feels in danger.
擁擠的人群中不能離開你的狗,尤其是有小孩的時候。路人不知道牠看不見,緊張而打狗狗,造成狗的吠叫和咬人的危險

☉Put night lights around the house to help guide the dog if he wanders at night.
在家開夜燈確保牠晚上的活動

☉Do not move furniture too much or leave low cupboard doors open.
不要移動家具太多,低矮的碗櫥隨時要關好,不要讓門開著

☉Install auto-sensory lights outside.
室內裝設自動感應照明的系統

☉Do not leave your dog unattended outside in the dark. This will only stress the dog if it cannot find its way back to the house.
不要讓你的狗在沒人陪伴的時候,到戶外黑暗的地方。牠找不到回家的路會增加壓力。

☉You can make a collar from a headset flashlight. Cut off the extra elastic that goes over the head and it becomes a collar. Have the dog wear it out at night on high beam to shine right in front of him. The beam collar is also good for finding him quickly outside at night and could warn off potential problems such as coyotes/raccoons. Sighted dogs can use it too for extra light when walking at night and a warning to oncoming traffic.
你可以登山用的頭燈做為狗狗的項圈。這樣方便你在夜間找到牠,也可以避免潛在的危險像是土狼和浣熊。看的見的狗狗也適用於警告迎面而來的車輛。

☉Block off steep stairs. Going up is fine but coming down can be hazardous.
把階梯改為斜坡,狗狗上樓是安全的,但是下樓很危險

☉If you have a pool or water on your property, keep a watchful eye on your dog. They can fall in and not be able to find a way out.
如果你家有游泳池或池塘,要看好你的狗,牠們可能跌落又不知如何上岸。

☉When walking with your dog always let him know where you are so he doesn't panic.
帶狗狗去散步時,要讓牠知道你在哪裡,這樣牠就不會不安了



These dogs adapt better than their human counterparts, but if you can help in any way, you'll have a lot more fun.
和人相比,部份狀況狗的適應程度比人更好,如果你可以幫助牠,你會有很多樂趣.
