Ever wonder how dogs become Guide Dogs?

You can explore the fascinating journey of a Guide Dog, starting from the very beginning – before they are even born.

Join us for one of our famous experiences and be granted with an unmissable opportunity, to gain behind-the-scenes access to the UK’s only Breeding Centre for Guide Dogs. You will even get to see some of our gorgeous puppies as they eat, play and snooze with their siblings in our Puppy Block.

You will be greeted by one of our knowledgeable team, who will guide you around our state-of-the-art facility and fill you in with the secrets of breeding our life-changing dogs. During the experience, you will be split into small groups, so you can ask as many questions as you like and take things at your own pace. Our Classic Experience is bursting with information that is delivered in a range of interesting and interactive ways, including:

• expert guides

• observing our colleagues as they work

• viewing our puppies from the puppy viewing platform

• close-up video footage

• handling artefacts, such as harnesses and canes

• Sensory Tunnel experience

Not only that, but you will have the chance to walk using sensory aids, which gives a brief insight into living with sight loss and emphasises the importance of our work at Guide Dogs.

The experience will last approximately two hours and will conclude with light refreshments and the chance to visit our popular gift shop.
