Hi Jackie
You said:
"if  GDBA are suggesting to Andy that he shouldn't go into Glasgow at this
time of year with his dog, then I have to ask myself what the purpose of
 having a dog is?"

Let me put it another way.
If a blind person has had mobility training with a long cane,
does that  always mean that person can *always* manage  with very 
busy  conditions. No

It's just same with a guide dog.
Not all  guide dog owners can  safely manage very busy conditions.
GDBA  has obviously considered safety,  when giving Andy  advice.
And it's advice,  not an order. 

Regards,  Derek
