First guide dog trained to run with blind Marine athlete

Posted by on December 29, 2015 in News

CBS – There was something extra special about one of the pups who graduated from a New York State guide dog school on Saturday. That’s not to say all of the four-legged graduates at Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a nonprofit that provides guide dogs to people with vision loss and children with autism, aren’t remarkable. But one of them, an energetic two-year-old German Shepherd named Klinger, is about to make history.

As far as Guiding Eyes is aware, Klinger is the country’s first guide dog specifically trained to run with a blind athlete. After six months of training—including 200 miles of running practice—Klinger is now ready to go home with 48-year-old Richard Hunter, a legally blind former marine who runs marathons, ultra-marathons and Ironman triathlons. Besides helping Mr. Hunter with everyday activities like grocery shopping, Starbucks trips and taking his kids to school, Klinger will also guide his new owner on running routes around Mr. Hunter’s home near Sacramento.
