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.

Weekly update – 31 weeks

Now 31 weeks old, Harry should have had his kennel cough vaccination during the last week but as we’re still waiting for the final test result from the vet, it has had to be delayed. Hopefully the result should be back and he’ll get his vaccination sometime over the next couple of days.

This week has been much more work orientated for Harry.  He’s had his usual trips to the supermarket, coffee shops and restaurants, and even spent quite a lengthy spell (for him) in a clothes shop. Harry’s also been on a visit to a local hospice for their summer event where he naturally charmed everybody.

Harry also worked very hard for his Good Citizen Bronze Award and we’re very proud of him. We’d done a lot of practice at home, especially on the extended ‘stay’ command, but puppies can be very unpredictable, especially at the age Harry is now. Fortunately when it came to exam time he didn’t forget any of his obedience training and did all his tasks perfectly.

Harry’s has loved watching the Olympic horse riding events on TV this week, but his best bit has to be the visit he had from Grover, they had great fun playing together and Grover loved tormenting Harry from under the kitchen chairs, but after a while Harry was exhausted so he tried to take a quick nap. He’d reckoned without the persistence of Grover.
