Congratulations, Chloe!

One of Guide Dogs' latest "sponsor a puppy" success stories is Chloe, who has settled happily into her new life with first-time guide dog owner Pat.

Chloe and Pat met before training together, to make sure they were a good match. The training helped Chloe to learn the routes Pat needs to take her round her home town. At first they worked with a Guide Dog Mobility Instructor, who taught Pat the commands for telling Chloe where to go; then Pat walked the routes with her husband. Soon Pat and Chloe became confident enough to go out alone, and now there's no stopping them!
