National Guide Dog Breeding Centre

National Guide Dog Breeding Centre

Our 2 hour tours will give you the chance to see our puppies as they socialise and grow, gaining experience of everyday sights and sounds which will help them develop the skills they need as guide dogs.

National Guide Dog Breeding Centre near Leamington Spa, Warwick and Stratford

 

Our new National Breeding Centre (NBC) will allow us to increase our capacity to breed puppies from 1,100 to 1,500 a year. In addition it provides modern facilities that will enhance dog and staff welfare and provide much better facilities for our volunteers. The new centre also allows us to cater for large groups of visitors and show them where life begins for a guide dog and how these life changing animals are bred.

 

Our 2 hour tours will give you the chance to see our puppies as they socialise and grow, gaining experience of everyday sights and sounds which will help them develop the skills they need as guide dogs. You can expect to see the National Breeding Centre going through its daily activities and find out how we use the latest technology and innovations in our breeding programme. Our guides will take you along the specially built walkways which enable you to view our work without disturbing either the dogs or staff. Take our Sensory Tunnel experience to get a brief insight into living with sight loss, and learn how people with sight loss get about.

 

Towards the end of the tour you'll have the opportunity to purchase gifts and pet products from our shop, where tea & coffee will also be served.

Importantly, you'll have the opportunity to meet some of our dogs, who will accompany Centre Guides on the tour.

 

The tour is free, but donations to the Guide Dogs welcome.

 

The tour is normally booked for 2pm, so enroute there will be a comfort stop for lunch in the Cotswolds, Stratford, Warwick or Leamington Spa.

 

Depart for Home Approx. 17.45
