Welcome Helmi, to Advanced Training! Helmi may be small but she thinks big! She is a quick little worker, loves getting into new places and really enjoys learning new skills. Helmi is from GDTX’s H Litter. Her mom is Darcy and her Dad is Maestro. Helmi and her siblings were born on 9/22/15 and 9/23/15.
The H litter is proving to be quick on their feet, very willing and aware, and are picking up training fast. They are wonderful group of potential Guide Dogs! Helmi graduated from the Puppy Program and into the Advanced Training Program in June 2017. Helmi was raised in early puppy hood by Jeanee Fraga and later on by Annette Hennessy. Both puppy raiser families did an amazing job with this clever little girl. They have given her a great start on her journey to towards becoming a Guide Dog.
Currently, Helmi loves her training walks with her Instructor. She is learning how to stop for curbs and steps, how to go around obstacles, how to indicate overhead obstacles such as tree limbs, and how to maintain her “straight line” so that her future Client can navigate known and unknown areas with ease. Helmi also enjoys going home at night and on the weekends with her Volunteer Boarder. These breaks are important for her so that she can rest, play, and recharge for the next day.
