Dear Puppy Raiser,
We wanted to let you know that Henry, #16112, has been in training for 5 weeks and has completed the first phase of training. The instructor working with Henry has made the following comments about the puppy you raised.
Some of the things that Henry is doing well at are:
1. Engaged with the handler and training
2. Learning early stages of guide work well
Some of the things that the trainer is working on with Henry are:
1. Minimizing his distraction level for blowing objects (ex. leaves)
3. Minimizing his distraction level for dogs
Along with this update which lets you know how Henry is doing at this point in training we have attached a photo of Henry in harness. Thank you for raising Henry for our program! Should you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact Puppy Development. You will also receive another update during the 13th week after Henry has completed their 12th week of training.

|Oh, Henry, please leave those leaves alone!|
None of these things are a surprise to me (ack, we worked so hard on ignoring blowing leaves!), but I am particularly pleased that Henry is "engaged" with learning! And he looks happy...
Keep it up boy - you make me proud!
