Episode 66: Panda - A Guide Horse for the Blind Part 2
Last week we began a conversation with Ann Edie. Ann is blind. Instead of a dog, she uses a miniature horse named Panda.
We’ve been talking a lot about cues in the recent podcasts. There is no better way to illustrate the concepts we’ve been exploring than to talk about Panda’s training and the job she does for Ann.
As we normally do, we’ve divided our conversation up into smaller segments. This is part two of that larger conversation. We began last week with the contrast between command and cue based training. We’ll begin here with a question Dominique asked about why Ann chose Panda as her guide.
