Here's Orinka, 9 weeks into her training. She's learning about off kerb obstacle work. The barriers you see are obstacles simulating things that might block a footpath like parked cars or bins. Orinka is learning how to safely guide her way around them. We think she's doing pretty well! Learn more about Guide Dog training here: [ Goo.gl Link ]

Here's a peek into what Guide Dog training looks like in the early stages.

Here you'll see how we train our Guide Dogs to: receive food gently, refuse food that is dropped on the floor, nose touch to a target, get on a platform (this helps straightness and stillness), target a kerb and harness introduction. Learn more about Guide Dog training here: [ Goo.gl Link ]
