I've only had Holly on the moving stairs  once.  They were the ones with no
steps that you could walk along on.  She couldn't wait to get offit and back
on solid ground again.  I'd sighted guide that day, and she nearly pulled us
off it..

In places where there are escalators, why can't there be lifts, if stairs
are not possible.  I can understand why Guide Dogs are not trained on these.
I much prefer the lift or stairs myself, as I'm always not sure where to put
my foot.

Hope this helps a bit Darragh.
Dominique & Holly.

Subject: [IRLGuideDogs] Using escalaters


Hello all,

I know that oficially we are all told not to use moving escalaters as they
can be dangerous for our dogs however from a conversation with someone who
regularly uses tube stations in London I understand that training can be
given to teach dogs and their users how to manage these?

I know this topic was discussed on this list a few years ago but nothing
really came of it.  I will be using tube stations on a much regular basis
over the next few months and I don't want to have to depend on assistance
each time I need to travel.

Has anyone in Ireland been given training on the use of escalaters? Has
Irish Guidedogs looked into this problem?
