Seems like it would be kinder to tap on the floor or put a piece of bacon in front of the dogs nose.

One of my Yorkies was blind and deaf the last two years of her life. I would wake her up by kissing the top of her head. It seemed to do the trick.

I bet that dog can play a mean pinball.

Fail, that's not the way. Scared blind dog is not funny.

There is a blind dog at our dog park all the time. He can hear OK.

His owner can throw a ball to him or near him and he finds it every time. He tags along on walks just like any other dog and recognizes people by the sound of their voice. (Probably their smell, too.)

He's got a pretty good life because he has a great owner.

I had a cat that went blind and no one knew.  I had her at the vet and he told me she was blind.  You never would have known it.  I suspect that because my Mom was the type not to move furniture, etc, the cat just knew its way around and was used to coming over when called.  Still...amazing that we never knew.  She would still run full speed through the house jumping on furniture and being a basic lunatic.  The only thing we ever noticed was that she ran into an opened umbrella once.  She looked shocked at first and then acted like she meant to do that and continued on her way.

Came to say something similar. The dog can smell and definitely arise to footsteps.

Our cat when I was a very little girl went blind in one eye. She was still one of the most successful hunters of all the cats I've served coontil they became indoor only.) Turns out, she taught herself to close the sightless eye when she hunted, to retain her depth perception.
