Poppy is the adorable labrador cross we're sponsoring to train as a guide dog.
Poppy has now made it to training school and is doing really well. She is everything that you want in a trainee guide dog - willing, enthusiastic, and enjoys learning new tasks.
Poppy has taken to the training harness very quickly and is a natural at guiding. When she isn’t wearing her harness she can be a cheeky puppy, but the moment it goes on she becomes very sensible and focused.
Poppy has begun working with her trainer on the obstacle course. This is made up of every day challenges she may come up against whilst guiding, such as traffic cones and road signs.
When not training Poppy is still very playful and friendly. And her new best friend is a trainee German shepherd cross called Nuggett.
