The Abbotsleigh boarders have a new addition to their community... of the four-legged variety. Vic is the 13th Guide Dog puppy in training that has started at Abbotsleigh. Vic, currently 15 weeks old, lives with the boarders in McCredie House and has quickly become part of the family. Although small in stature, his confidence is huge – his explorations around the house sometimes results in him being found asleep on a bed snuggled into a pillow.
He is quickly learning valuable skills in socialisation and has started his basic command training with the boarders. Over the next 12 months Vic will continue to learn new skills based around lead-work, positive interactions with others, confidence with new people and obedience. The boarders are looking forward to helping Vic reach Guide Dog brilliance. Watch this for space for more of Vic’s adventures.
