National Breeding Centre

Come and see the puppies who become life-changing guide dogs throughout the UK. They all start their journey at our National Breeding Centre 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 over 9000 puppies.  That's a lot of life changers!

Our scheduled tours are suitable for all ages and abilities and our Puppy Helper Experiences from the age of 5 upwards. 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. Please note that this tour doesn’t involve going into the kennel block or handling puppies.
