Would you like to be a Puppy Walker for Guide Dogs?

guide dog logoThe role involves bringing up a puppy for it's first year of life before it goes on to train as a Guide Dog, if suitable. It takes a lot of time, commitment and love but the end result is a very special animal. Feeding, training and caring for a puppy's daily needs is time consuming. When very young, puppies cannot be left on their own for extended periods of time. Our guideline is 3 hours maximum. Will you be able to commit the time required for this?

The puppy will need exposure to busy town conditions on a regular basis: shops, traffic, crowds. It will also need to be familiarised with car travel and public transport. Would you be able to provide this experience?

You need to have a suitable area in your home to accomodate the puppy with easy access to a hard surfaced or gravel toileting area.

You will receive support throughout the process from a Puppy Walking Supervisor. They will visit regularly to check on progress, give practical advice and assist with any difficulties you may encounter.

 

Minimum age: 18 years

Any current pets must be of a suitable temperament for the puppy.Guide Dogs

This role is not suitable for full time workers.

You must be willing to adhere to the training instructions set by supervisors or this could impact on the puppy's future training as a Guide Dog.

This opportunity is currently only available in the following postcodes: EN1-EN5
