Puppy Walking

Guide dog puppyPuppy walking is a crucial volunteering role which prepares guide dog puppies for their working life ahead by familiarising them with different environments including the home, towns and public transport.

Volunteer puppy walkers provide the full-time care and education of a puppy from six weeks of age until they are between 12 and 14 months old. The puppies then return to Guide Dogs to begin formal training.
