Video: A guide dog's view of the world


10 October 2012

Ever wondered how the world looks from a guide dog's point of view?

In a unique video, people can follow guide dog Alma as she goes about her daily duties for her owner, Nicky West.

The two-year-old Labrador had a small camera fitted to the handle of her harness, and was filmed guiding Nicky to the bus station in Romsey, Hampshire - a route the duo take every day.
