|have you considered basic obedience? for a lot of people, training any dog is a challenge...but training a blind dog can seem utterly impossible. if it's financially possible, i'd try to get her into some training classes; try finding someone who has some experience with blind dogs.
if you can't afford to go the professional route, you might get some training books...maybe there are even ones specifically for dogs with disabilities like blindness...and go from there.
your biggest obstacle is finding a way to communicate with her, that she understands. she's at a huge disadvantage in this world to begin with, since she's blind...dogs rely SO much on body language, even in learning from their people, and since she can't SEE body language, she really has nothing to go on.
