Picture of Harry

Hi. My name is Harry, I'm a Guide Dog Puppy in Training and this is my Blog.

Atherton Appeal

Harry supported Guide Dogs' appeal to equip the brand new training school for the North of England at Atherton. He was keen to help as he was to be one of the first puppies to train at the new school.

Harry was at the launch of the appeal on 7th October 2008 where he got to meet the Press. One of the newspaper articles can be seen here.

Bird watcher

A working Guide Dog should never be distracted by birds, so one of the most important lessons a puppy has to learn is not to chase them. Harry loves to watch birds, but fortunately he’s never really shown much desire to chase. Harry was paddling in the lake, just as a group of ducks swam by, so Harry waded out to have a look.

Wading in to the lake

We held out breath as Harry headed straight for them, but we needn’t have worried, he just stopped and watched. Someone was feeding them from the nearby pier, so they swam quite fast – straight past the end of his nose. Harry was fascinated by these things floating on the water, in fact we’re not even sure he knew they were birds. But he was very disappointed that, whatever they were, they didn’t stop to play.
