We have a blind girl we rescued last summer-Uveitis in both, Gluacoma in the right & cataracts.I have found using word cues has worked wonderfully with her.It takes a lot of work but in the end it pays off.Use direction when walking-left,right,step up,step down & when she approaches somethng I use the word easy & she approaches with caution. Calm soothing tones is good to calm her & always talk when approaching so as not to scare her. Being blind her other senses are more keen then normal and she is can pick up a lot more then you think. The big thing is startling. Do not approach from the blind side without warning and do not touch without warning. I always let her touch/smell with her nose before putting anything on her weither it be her blanket or a brush. The other thing is not to cut her whiskers as they are feeling points for her. Something you may want to keep in mind for your guy..Its not hard to work with them, just a little common sense is all that is needed...
