Sonar/Echo-Location Devices

BlindSight® for Canines


BlindSight® for Canines is a new enhanced echo-location device for blind canines (Pat.Pending). BlindSight® is a specialized “Sonar” type transmitter that produces a sound that may be used by a dog to navigate in much the same way as a dolphin or bat. The sound produced by the BlindSight® unit is well outside of the human hearing range. There is no annoying audible “click” or “ping”. In tests the units remained on 24 hours a day with no apparent problems with a dog’s sleep or relaxation. BlindSight® uses inexpensive, commonly available disposable batteries for a normal battery life of up to 1.5 years (up to 3.5 years with premium lithium batteries, in indoor mode). The latest BlindSight® uses a completely sealed transducer, is designed for a 10+ year service life and is “patent pending”. Spares for parts that might easily be lost are included. Obviously no concessions were made to “looks”, but simple functionality and extreme ruggedness define the basic design.

BlindSight® offers:
– 90%+ reduction in collisions
– Greater awareness of surroundings
– Return of lost confidence.

        Thank you so much for this article! We are big believers in safety equipment. I regard halo’s and eye protection as fundamental! I will add a link to this site on our web page under resources.

        I am constantly reminding people that with a blind dog, even with a BlindSight unit you still need a prepared environment and safety equipment! The more active the dog, the more important!

      This is the inventor! We have an agent and stock in Scotland available for shipment across the UK and across the EU. You can order directly from our site. The prices are the same across the world. We use Paypal secure checkout and they handle the currency exchange and we pay the small fee. A small lab would probably use the BlindSight-S2, $416 USD.
      I want you to know that I also consider Halo’s and eye protection important for blind dogs. Our units only image down to about 3/4 inch. That means that an active dog could still run into a sharp object and damage the eye socket, etc.!
