Attacks on guide dogs are more common than you would realise. The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association has started a new #TakeTheLead campaign that calls for pet dog owners to help prevent avoidable attacks on guide dogs.

For a blind or partially sighted person, a guide dog can be their lifeline, so having it attacked and potentially injured can be a very frightening experience.

The association has produced a short animated film that be seen here.

If you are a dog owner, please be aware of the vital nature of a guide dog.

Vantage IT supports The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association by sponsoring their training of gorgeous guide dog trainee Buddy. Find out more about him here.
