Luca Brasi frontman Tyler Richardson has penned a new theme song for Guide Dogs Tasmania.
On International Guide Dog Day, the organisation is askins the community to help ensure that Guide Dogs and their handlers can safely navigate the community by:
- Always talking to the handler, not their Guide Dog.
- If you think a person needs assistance, ask them rather than assuming they need help.
- If possible, give the Guide Dog and their Handler space to pass.
- Never feed, pat or distract a Guide Dog when it is wearing harness or orange training coat.
- Make sure pet dogs are on a lead and under control in public.
- Remember that Guide Dogs are legally allowed to go everywhere their handler does.
The local muso loves dogs, and is happy to do his bit to help spread awareness.
“I think people sometimes struggle with how they should interact with guide dogs, and where guide dogs are allowed to go.”
