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?
