Welcome to Advanced Training Gino! For anyone in the San Antonio area, Gino should be a familiar face as he has been featured on KSAT 12 on a weekly basis since he was just a few days old. To continue to watch his progress in Advanced Training, be sure to tune in to KSAT 12!
Gino is a gentle giant, with a willing heart and calm demeanor. He can be playful when excited but loves his training and work the best. He is from GDTX’s G Litter. His mom is Faith and his Dad is Santa. Gino and his brothers and sister were born on 8/8/15. The G litter is proving to be extraordinarily clever, willing, aware, and gentle. A wonderful group of potential Guide Dogs! Gino graduated from the Puppy Program and into the Advanced Training Program in February 2017. His Puppy Raiser, Mike McKinney, did a great job with him and gave him a great start on his journey towards becoming a Guide Dog.
These days, Gino loves his training walks with his Instructor. He 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 his “straight line” so that his future Client can navigate known and unknown areas with ease. Gino also enjoys going home at night and on the weekends with his Boarder. These breaks are important for his so that he can rest, play, and recharge for the next day.
