KNGF Geleidehonden - Guide dogs also help people who have seen too much

This is the new commercial from KNGF Geleidehonden, the Dutch Guide Dog Association. They are known for the training of guide dogs.
That they also train dogs for different tasks is less well known. As for war veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. They often suffer from insomnia, nightmares and reliving.

A dog contributes to a sense of security, increased mobility and comfort and peace, seeking contact and make his boss awake by nightmares.

“We not only help people who can’t see, but also people who have seen too much.”

Update: the video is now available in English. See below. Thank you Selmore.

Google Maps for Guide Dogs

KNGF Geleidehonden: Google Maps for Guide Dogs

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 :-)

Guide Dog on the Catwalk

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 6-04-2011 19:36 | Category: Health

Smart ad which is very similar to this campaign from Cordaid. But for a completely different cause.
Like a catwalk various dogs are spotted on the street, showing the most expensive fashion items. But the things which really matters aren’t that expensive. A so called halfcheck (collar/harness) cost only €3,00

The ad is from KNGF Geleidehonden, the Dutch KNGF Guide Dogs.
