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 – 45 weeks

Although Harry thoroughly enjoyed his week in the Lake District, he dropped back into his normal routine at home very well. We thought he might find it boring and fully expected him to be upset at not sleeping in the same room as us, but as soon as we walked into the house he headed straight for his bed and jumped in with a big sigh. You could almost hear him thinking Aah! There’s nothing quite like my own bed.

Harry has been back to regular training walks in town and with visits to the supermarket, clothes shops and coffee shops. He’s also attended a Pilates class and been on a visit to the local Girl Guide meeting that he loved, which is not surprising considering the amount of fuss and attention he got there.

Since the clocks went back a few weeks ago, Harry has been a little bit wary of fast moving traffic coming towards him, especially when the vehicles have their headlights on. He’s getting more and more confident and is now a lot happier in the dark, although when it’s dusk or raining he can still get a bit concerned.

Harry’s also started to become much more independent in the last few days. He now no longer waits for us to put him to bed at night, instead when he’s had enough, he’ll take himself off to the kitchen to curl up in his bed. That’s a big bonus for us as we no longer have to strain to hear the TV over the top of his snoring!
