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.

You can find out how the centre was built by clicking through the links to the left of this page on factsphotos of build diary, history and information for visitors.


9,068 puppies have been born so far!
