National Breeding Centre

Come and see the puppies who become life-changing guide dogs throughout the UK! All our pups start their journey at our National Breeding Centre (NBC), located just outside Leamington Spa. At the centre we have the room to breed up to 1500 puppies a year and since we opened our doors in 2011, we have now bred almost 11,000 puppies - that's a lot of life changers!

We offer scheduled tours of the NBC which are suitable for all ages and abilities (please note that the public tour doesn’t involve going into the kennel block or handling any puppies), and a Puppy Helper Experience for age five and upwards which is incredibly popular. Those that attend the tours get a chance to see the puppies as they socialise and grow, gaining experience of everyday sights and sounds which help them develop the skills needed to become guide dogs. You also learn more about the incredible work they will go on to do as future guide dogs.

Taking photographs is a wonderful way of remembering your visit, however, as the National Breeding Centre is a working site we ask that you gain permission from any staff members before including them in your photography.
