Last week, I was lucky enough to work with my friend and amazing animal trainer, Gillian and her inspirational Collie, Sammy. The pair have both worked hard together and overcame some pretty serious obstacles, notably Sammy’s total blindness stemming from a detached retina that spiraled into Glaucoma. Adapting her training methods for then 2-year old Sammy’s special needs, Gillian developed a regimen tailoring to dogs with various disabilities and eventually started her own company – The Wonder Dog Institute. It was very apparent, the close bond these two shared, and my goal as a photographer was to showcase that.
Thanks Gillian and Sammy!
