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 – 55 weeks

Harry’s activities this week have certainly been determined by the weather and although we’ve tried very hard to keep his routine as normal as possible, things haven’t always gone according to plan.

On the first day of snow, although we didn’t have an awful lot, Harry still had a whale of a time in the back garden when he went out for his first toilet break of the day, but when it came time to go on a training walk Harry wasn’t so sure about leaving the house.

Due to the disruption on public transport Harry didn’t get to go to town as much as usual, or take a trip into the city, but he still went shopping with us to the local shops.

Harry also attended our regular Pilates class, but due to problems with the heating this was in a different room. Normally we anchor Harry by his lead to something sturdy, but this time there was nothing to attach him to so he was free to roam around, but he astounded us all when he calmly lay down in the corner and stayed there for an hour. He only got up once and that was so he could turn over and lie on his other side.

It hasn’t all been training though, Harry has had an awful lot of fun this week.  Although the snow was strange at first, he soon got used to it and really enjoyed himself. All his usual off-lead walks were just so much more exciting, things looked so different and he could eat it!
