Juan and Wilma - a new partnership begins on the Isle of Man

Juan learning how to be guided by Wilma with the Guide Dogs Mobility InstructorOn the 3rd of January Juan and his Mum Linda came over to meet a Guide Dog Mobility Instructor from the Manchester Mobility team and a Golden Retriever called Wilma.  After some obedience training and short handle walks so Juan could learn how to follow the harness, Juan finally had his first ever walk with a Guide Dog.  The day was an enormous success and Juan and Wilma have now been matched and will commence their training later this month.
