Looking after a blind dog isn't that different from a sighted one, but there are some things that you can do to make life a little safer for your new charge, and some things that can make life more interesting by providing alternative stimuli in place of sight. If you have a blind dog already and have other suggestions/ideas, please let us know!
No matter how it seems or feels right now, your dog's blindness is much harder on you than it is for him/her! Eye sight ranks only 3rd in importance compared to smell and hearing to your dog.
Our dogs pick up easily on our own feelings. Even though you are feeling sad for your dog, try to talk to him often in a "cheery voice" as if nothing has changed, and try not to "baby" your baby!
If you are bringing a new blind puppy or dog into your home and you have time, provide the dog with something with your scent on it for a few days before bring your dog home.
