‘Vision’ continues to make steady progress in the Guide Dog training program as she strengthens her guiding skills. Although cats can prove quite a distraction to ‘Vision’, some good improvement has been made and this is something being focussed on to resolve. She has proven herself quite adaptable to different environments which is a positive sign of her learning and task understanding of the guiding role. Given her increasing knowledge, ‘Vision’ is taking on more responsibility for each guiding task with fewer vocal prompts and physical cues. Vision has not lost any of her exuberance or character and is a real pleasure to work with.
‘Virtue and Vulcan’
‘Virtue’ and ‘Vulcan’ have been withdrawn from the Guide Dog Training Program. ‘Vulcan’ has already found a new home and ‘Virtue’ will be rehomed shortly as a pet with a loving family.
