all I will say is to each there own, and what works for one person might not
necessarily be the right choice for another work for another person and visa
versa. There was a time when people couldn't fathom the idea of dogs being
used as guides and the idea of them going into public places still rankles
some people, however it is now a commonly accepted form of mobillity for the
blind. Regardless of what  think or have to say about it. often times
progress and change gallop forth.
Respectfully, Kyle Woodard
