The Guide Dog National Breeding Centre

The Guide Dog National Breeding Centre

We travel to Royal Leamington Spa for free time before heading off for our guided tour of the Guide Dogs' National Breeding Centre

We travel to Royal Leamington Spa for free time to do a spot of shopping - with wide boulevards, Georgian and Edwardian architecture and award-winning parks providing a stunning backdrop to this shopping paradise.

Often described as 'the best bits of London, all in a ten-minute walk', Leamington town centre combines a treasure-trove of independent, specialist boutiques with all the national chains you would expect to find in a large city.

You will have time to grab some lunch before we travel on to the National Guide Dog Breeding Centre where we have a tour booked for 2.00pm.

The National Breeding Centre provides all the guide dog puppies in the UK. Come and see for yourself where it all starts, on a 2-hour tour, where you can view some guide dog puppies through special viewing windows and learn about the life-changing work they do from dedicated tour guides.

Finish off with refreshments and gift shop

The tour will give you the chance to see the 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 they use the latest technology and innovations in their breeding.

Our guide will take you along the specially built walkways which enable you to view their work without disturbing either the dogs or staff.

Take the 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 the shop, where tea and coffee will also be served.

We include a donation to the Guide Dogs for the blind association within the price.

At 4.00pm we travel back to our local area, with a service stop on our return journey we expect to arrive in the local area around 7.00pm.
