Taking the lead for buddy dogs

The Buddy Dogs team is on the lookout for volunteer puppy walkers to offer a nurturing environment to puppies in training. Could you take the lead?

Pups are placed with appointed volunteer puppy walkers at the age of six weeks, and remain in their care throughout their early training at ‘puppy class’ before progressing to advanced training.

As well as being immensely rewarding, puppy walking is a challenging and worth-while pursuit for a very good cause.

For more information, please call 0845 3727424.

Guide Dogs for the Blind is a registered charity which currently receives no lottery funding, so financial help is always welcome.

All money raised by the Annesley unit is put to good use within the area for training and service provision. You can donate directly to the mobility team by calling 0845 372 7424.
