Dentist Liz’s puppy continues its training: update on Ramsay’s journey

We like to share news on what’s happening on the clinical side of our work here at our Glasgow dental clinic.

We also like to let you know of any new advances in treatments such as dental implant work and cosmetic dentistry.

But we also enjoy giving you an insight into the life our experienced and committed team members share when they’re away from the Glasgow clinic…and that can range in topics from family life, sporting interests and big life milestones to hobbies and courses.

ASSISTANCE DOGS

Earlier this year we shared news about our dentist colleague Liz Glass and how her family’s pet labrador Twiggy had given birth to some pups.

One of the male pups – called Ramsay – was donated by Liz and her family to the excellent charity called Canine Partners which trains puppies to become assistance dogs for people with disabilities. These dogs can make a huge difference to those people who are assigned their canine partner.

Liz has just shared with us an update on how Ramsay is progressing since he headed off from her home in Glasgow for his new ‘working life’.

According to the charity team, young Ramsay is making good progress, settling into training classes and is learning to do as he is asked promptly rather than in his own time!

SOUND IN TRAFFIC

The update report added: “With encouragement he settles well both at home and in class when the humans are having coffee.

“He seems sound in traffic and his lead walking is improving. He loads into the car well and travels with no problems.

“At first he was tending to bark at other dogs but now it is the occasional whine rather than a bark which is good. Hopefully the whining will stop as he matures.”

The charity also provided Liz with some new photos of Ramsay…and there’s certainly a big difference in him since the last time he appeared in our blog!

We look forward to further updates on Ramsay’s progress.
