Ally’s photo shoot with Blesma
A recent photo shoot for Blesma magazine resulted in some stunning pictures of one of our dogs Ally in advanced training. In military slang, ‘Ally’ is used to describe how cool someone or their equipment looks, usually their battlefield fashion. Anyone who knows Hounds for Heroes’ Ally will know that this describes her personality to a ‘T’.
In the photos below, Ally is shown working with her trainer Jade on specific task work ready for placement with her new partner. We’re delighted to say that since these pictures were taken Ally has completed her training and is now in a working partnership.
A training session
One of the hardest things to learn about picking up a tin is to take it from the side, not from the top.
Picking up dropped items is high on the list of requirements for our partners.
Tugging is used for opening drawers, cupboard doors and also helping with sleeves and socks when undressing.
Working with Allen
All the dogs get a chance to work with our founder while training.
