Welcome to our eight new recruits, the ‘D’ litter, born on Nov 15, 2008.
Young pups Dixie, Digger, Duke, Daisy, Donna, Daphne, Danny and Dexter are four months old this month, and are looking forward to having their final vaccination and puppy class where they will receive their official Guide Dogs Victoria Puppy jacket.
Over the next 12 months these pups will be introduced to all the sights and sounds of the world to make sure they are not afraid or distracted. Then they will have a further six months of intensive training and assessment to prepare them for their important role as a Guide Dog.
