We offer a Puppy Helper Experience at the National Centre. The half-day experience allows visitors to get hands-on with activities, including:

  • Meeting and helping us to socialise some of our puppies
  • Enjoy supporting a hands-on health check of a puppy
  • Learning about their journey to become life changers
  • Taking a behind the scenes tour of the National Centre
  • Sensory tunnel experience
  • Blindfold activities to experience the challenges a visually impaired person may face in daily life
  • Dedicated tour guides to accompany you throughout your visit
  • Photo opportunities
  • Refreshments

Puppy Helper Experience group sizes will be limited to a maximum of 6 people. The experience can be bought as a celebratory gift, work incentive, or for educational reasons. Visitors will receive a certificate and gift at the end of the session to go with some great memories of these very special dogs.

The great interaction and time we were given to play and feed the pups was lovely. The staff were extremely informative and friendly. Thank you so much for making this a special day.
