Had another visit from our Guide dog Mobility Instructor today to do the route to the leisure centre which we hadn’t done on Monday. I have to take back what I said about a medical centre with poor access as, just past the road where I used to approach it from, there is another turning which leads almost directly there. Jasmine and I learnt that way in about 10 minutes and I’m confident that we’ll have no problems with that route.
Normally jasmine has been shown new routes on the lead first, then in harness. Tonight,however, we decided to continue the walk in harness with me directing Jasmine. She worked brilliantly, even picking out the obvious way around some bollards and a slightly awkward pavement that doesn’t really follow the straight line. She seemed so confident and our instructor was very pleased with the way we’ve progressed in the last few weeks.
I’m so chuffed with her, she’s shown bags of potential today.
Tomorrow its our first train journey together.
