The Guide Dogs Association of the Blind (GDAB) fully advocates a wider acceptance of guide dogs among businesses and public places in accordance with the legislature in Singapore (“RSH Limited apologises to guide dog owner Cassandra Chiu for commotion at Zara”; ST Online, Monday).

However, the GDAB is also mindful that acceptance requires time and that there needs to be mutual trust, consent and understanding.

The board of GDAB will be investigating the incident at Zara that involved our guide dog user.
