I am yes, because you have missed the point. Smiles

Not all guide dog owners can safely manage very  busy conditions.

And, not all blind people can cope with a guide dog, just as not all blind
people can manage  to get out  alone.

It's like saying if you show someone  how to use Jaws,  and the student does
not  follow your  instructions,   are you to blame  when things go
seriously wrong?

It's  same thinking with a guide dog.
Yes,  sometimes the dog  is at  fault, but not always.
Sometimes it's the user at  fault, if they don't follow the instructions
they have been given.
