First Time in Harness

Today, we had our Southeastern Guide Dogs Puppy Raiser meeting at Largo Park.  It was our Area Coordinator Stephanie's first official meeting and she just happened to bring along two harnesses because there were several of our puppies who would be going in for training (IFT) in July and August and they hadn't ever worn a harness. (Our AC is super organized!)

Here is Stephanie, our new AC, holding two leather guide dog harnesses.
Coach was one of the first to be able to try on the harness and he put it on with nary a problem.

 In fact, all the puppies who tried the harness, did so with great success! Go Central Puppies!!

Coach was able to walk for 5-10 minutes with the harness on and didn't find it uncomfortable at all.  All good signs!


Only 36 days to go.


  1. Coach is gonna make an awesome guide pupper! yep harness thingies are the best, even us nut cases walk better with them on!
