Being a Guide Dog is by no means an easy task, and sadly Edison has been removed from the training programme. Edison showed low willingness to the training and it was decided it would not be in his best interest to progress his training further. Once withdrawn a puppy is assessed to see if it is suitable to be an assistance dog in another capacity, e.g. a hearing dog, or a Guide Dogs Buddy Dog, which work with blind or partially sighted children to improve their quality of life and counter isolation. However, Edison was not considered suitable for either of these pathways and he has been found a new home with one of Guide Dogs’ pre-approved rehomers.
Guide Dogs play an important part in society; this is why it is so important that the dogs are assessed and trained accordingly. As a result of Edison’s withdrawal from the programme, Eastcott Vets needs to rename a new puppy and this is where they need your help!
If you would like to suggest any names (suitable for a female dog this time), please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions. The 3 most popular names will be submitted to Guide Dogs for approval.
