Izzy continues to get bigger and smarter by the day! He has finally outgrown his puppy coat and has upgraded to his adult coat! This coat is much longer so that it hits closer to his tail. This helps him become comfortable with the sensation of something touching his lower back, where the harness handle will sometimes rest when he's a working guide dog.
Izzy has also begun going to meetings and working with new puppy raisers. He is helping to teach them the ropes while learning how to be responsive to new handlers. The goal is to help Izzy transition more easily to working with his guide dog trainer and future handler.
