In 2011, having outgrown its previous premises, Guide Dogs’ National Breeding Centre was opened. The Centre can breed up to 1500 puppies each year, which helps Guide Dogs support almost 5,000 guide dog partnerships in the UK.
Join us on our visit to the Centre on our 2-hour tour of the Visitors’ Centre, where you will view some guide dog puppies playing and socialising through special viewing windows, meet some guide dog breeding stock, and learn about the life-changing work carried out there. Your tour will be hosted by a team of dedicated tour guides, who will accompany you throughout. You will also have an opportunity to take our Sensory Tunnel experience. Finish off your tour with refreshments and a visit to the gift shop, which also sells dog products.

Please note this trip replaces the original date advertised in February. The centre advised me that their Breeding Plan predicted that it was likely there would be very few if any puppies in the facility around the February date.
Please Note that the Breeding Centre does not charge for the tour, however a £5 donation per passenger has been added to the price of this trip. If you would like to donate more there will be donation boxes available in the area used for refreshments at the end of the tour.
Refreshments are supplied free of charge (donations welcome)
Most of the tour will be inside buildings, but there is a section that will require you to go outside, so please dress appropriately.
Price £18.50 (includes £5 donation to Guide Dogs)
