A real, lovely Lady
Lady is a sweet-natured little girl who is mastering her guiding skills.
She’s known to be very good at ‘puppy dog eyes’, which makes it hard for anyone to resist giving her belly rubs.
Oh how we love Odin
Odin loves delicious treats and attention. He’s a big boy so there’s more of him to cuddle!
Odin sometimes finds it hard to squeeze into tight spaces, but always stays calm and focused.
Look at me, I’m Harry B!
Harry B will do anything for those two special words, ‘good boy’.
His skills include weaving through obstacles and navigating his handler.
Pawfect little Jane
Jane was the littlest pup but has a big personality.
Her enthusiasm and sense of fun are balanced by the precision and patience she demonstrates to her handler.
She’s the perfect package who can’t put a paw wrong.
