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.

Up and down

One of the many things a Guide Dog puppy has to do is experience different types of stairs, from concrete and wooden stairs right through to indoor carpeted stairs. One of the most difficult to find are the open-tread staircases, we’ve discovered that these are mostly found inside people’s homes, but occasionally they can be located outside.

So when we came across this set of open stairs in an outdoor location we made the most of the opportunity and took Harry up and down them on a number of occasions.

Despite the fact that they were particularly steep, Harry didn’t bat an eyelid and was so comfortable going up and down that he even managed to stop and pose for the camera on the way down.
