My daughter found out today that their dog is indeed going blind as she had thought and will very likely be completely blind in 6 months to a year. He has retinal atrophy which is inherited. They are probably going to be getting another dog to be his seeing-eye buddy dog. They lost his brother a couple of years ago when he chewed a hole in the kennel and was hit by a car and killed. They have talked about getting another dog since then, but just haven't. Do any of you have any tips or ideas for them to help him adjust? They are going to start working on verbal cues such as saying steps when they go up and down the stairs.
