I also had to assess 9 of the older pups in our puppy scheme to see if they have the necessary qualities and skills to start on an Initial Police dog course. Five dogs are required for our Initial course starting on the 9th of September and the remainder will be going to outside forces.
I will be outlining how the assessments went in my next blog.
In amongst this I have been training the January pups and visiting the A litter puppy walkers to make sure they were all coping alright.
The main issue for most of them was their pups not sleeping through the night but I am happy to say they are all now fully settled in and thriving.
Here are a few pictures of the pups at their new homes.AXEL chilling in his garden in Launceston where he lives with Steve, Maria and their girls Faye, Laura, and Grace.
Ash in Redruth sitting patiently waiting for her puppy walker Annie to open the food container.

Out for the count on Lowri's slippers
and later hiding in the bushes.

Annie settled in her new home in Paignton with all the family Ollie, Leanne and 10 month old daughter Millie.
Argo who lives in Plymouth with Lyn and John Parlour pictured in the yard and hopefully one day he will grow into those ears.

Last but not least Arry who also lives in Plymouth with puppy walkers Paul and Tracey Bean and their children Ella and Josh
