Royal Canin™ and Guide Dogs announce new partnership

18 Feb 2016


The Guide Dogs charity has forged a new partnership with Royal Canin. The global pioneers in pet tailored health nutrition has been selected as the charity's sole dog food supplier.

The decision was taken by Guide Dogs after a careful review of its approach to ensuring that the 8,000 guide dogs that the charity is responsible for feeding get the right nutrition. The pet food company will supply a wide range of super-premium and specialist diets that meet the different needs of the charity's dogs, from tiny puppies to working guide dogs, and older dogs who are enjoying their retirement.

Commenting on the new relationship, Carol Warner, Service Director, Canine Services, Guide Dogs, said:

"Every day our guide dogs are working hard to help thousands of people with sight loss live independently and with confidence so it is essential that they get the right nutrition. Whether they are puppies in training, trainee guide dogs, working guide dogs or a golden oldie enjoying a well-earned retirement, we want to make sure they get the best diets possible. Royal Canin offers us a wide range of diets which are proven to meet the specific needs of our dogs. Royal Canin have got to know us over the past nine years and we're confident that the company will help us ensure that all our dogs are happy, healthy and ready to do their important jobs."

Pauline Devlin, Director of Scientific Communications and Corporate Affairs at Royal Canin, said:

"We're really looking forward to working with the charity Guide Dogs. Through the partnership we'll be helping guide dogs enable thousands of people living with sight loss get out and about on their own terms."

As well as providing specialist food that meets the wide range of nutritional needs of guide dogs, Royal Canin will be developing a variety of other partnership opportunities with Guide Dogs during 2016.
