Dog cape information

Dog cape information

Every dog who takes part in a Dogs Unite event becomes a hero for Guide Dogs, by raising vital funds and awareness that make a life-changing difference to those with sight loss.

Once you have registered, your pooch will receive a free super hero cape - an accessory a hero can’t live without!

It is of course important that the dogs are comfortable and safe when wearing our hero capes, so here’s some quick guidance for you to follow:

If you’re a Guide Dogs Puppy Walker, please speak to your Puppy’s supervisor to check it’s ok for your puppy to wear a cape at its particular age and stage of training

Remember the capes aren’t toys, and they’re only intended for dogs and puppies to wear – not their human sidekicks, sorry!

Please check that his or her cape is secured correctly, and remove it if they seem in any distress

Keep your dog on a lead at all times and take their cape off if they’re free running or spending 

Do not leave your dog unsupervised with their cape on

These capes will really make your super hero pooch stand out from the crowd!
