This harrowing GoPro video shows just how hard a guide dog works to get a blind owner through a big city. Former doctor Amit Patel relies on his guide dog, Kika after losing his sight a few years back.
Patel’s wife created social media accounts to raise awareness about the important work guide dogs do and to educate the public on letting the dogs do their work.
@Kika_GuideDog posts footage almost daily as she takes on the streets of London with Patel.

Patel credits Kika with allowing him to start a family. He says a few years ago he wouldn’t have considered it, but Kika has given him more freedom to navigate life.
