Ace the water bowl snorkeler…

This clever little puppy is Ace, he is in training to be a guide dog for “Guide dogs NSW” http://www.guidedogs.com.au/
The puppy raising program requires volunteers to care for a puppy in their home from the age of 8 weeks, until they are approximately 12-15 months of age.
Puppy raisers are responsible for feeding, grooming and exercising their pups daily, along with basic obedience, house-training, and visits to the vet when needed.
While this training is important, the dogs are first and foremost puppies – so plenty of games and tummy scratches are also required!
Because Ace is only 3 months old, he has a lot more to learn before he can be a working dog and help someone who is visually impaired, so for now he spends his days playing tug ‘o’ war and chasing the the cat, Boris, around the backyard. Ace loves meeting new people and new people always love meeting him.
How can you resist that floppy, bouncy ball of cuteness! After his portrait shoot, I found it hard to leave and I can only imagine how hard it will be for his carers to let him go to guide dog school after the year is up.
