A new nifty Google Maps tool. Getting safely from A to B with a Guide Dog with Google Maps.
It really works, check this route (and press the ‘Get Directions’ button).
For blind people, getting from A to B is often a challenging route. Guide dogs enable blind people to safely, easily and independently take to the streets. This is why KNGF Geleidehonden (The Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation) trains puppies to be guide dogs.
The only thing we have to wait for is a smartphone made for dogs :-)
