“White Cane” Collars and Harnesses

Continually colliding with furniture, walls and other obstacles is enough to cause even the most outgoing of dogs to lose confidence in their ability to navigate their surroundings. Blind dogs can often become withdrawn and reluctant to move about their own home – even moreso in less familiar surroundings such as the park. A Hoop or Halo collar or harness can help restore some of their confidence and encourage them to start to explore their environment.

The following sites sell Hoop/Halo collars:
