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, and a Puppy Helper Experience* from the age of 5 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.
*Please note that the public tour doesn’t involve going into the kennel block or handling puppies.
