He also has hearing problems and can’t tell which way sounds are coming from. He has to smell me to know its me. He can see shadows I think. He runs around very well , just will not see anything below him or beside him.
I have to have him on a harness in the mountains , he once wondered off and when we saw him he couldn’t see us, when you would yell he’d run the other way . Very scary. No more free range for him. I had scent block clothes on , it was very bright out he just only ran from me, my husband snuck up behind him and caught him. He was freaking out till he was dragged to me and I let him smell me.
Anyway as Renegade ages his vision will worsen . We live on a ranch and since he can not see well he is not a cattle dog , he does very well to stay at the gates and avoid the livestock. I’m looking for a sight to see how other people make their dogs happy and not feel different , especially as his eyes worsen. I want to be ready and prepared.
