As we have never visited the Atherton training centre, we have organised a visit there on 16th April 2020 as part of our day tour program, in the hope that it may coincide with “Caradoc” in training. BUT NO GUARANTEES.
However, this particular centre limits the numbers on its tours to a maximum of 35 people.
**So, make sure your name goes down as soon as possible if you want a guaranteed place! **
NOVEMBER 7th 2019
Visit to the Guide Dog Training Centre
@ Leamington Spa
Once again, a huge thank you to all the staff and volunteers that looked after us on the day.
In addition, the training centre did find an update on our “CARADOC” puppy (obviously not so much a puppy, now at a year old!) She is doing well out and currently out with puppy walkers in Liverpool. Whilst she is still under assessment, if all goes well and she makes the grade, she should move to a training centre within the next few months. The likelihood (although there are no guarantees at this stage) is that she will go to the training centre nearest to her current location which is Atherton.
Caradoc is out with her puppy walkers and progressing very well towards her/our goals of becoming a fully fledged guide dog.
As many of you already know, in 2017 we raised £1800 for the Guide Dog Organisation. Then with more effort in 2018, we increased this to over £2500.
So meet our new addition, “CARADOC” our very own puppy.
(The most popular name proposed & voted by you).
She has already started on her destiny to change a life & leave our legacy.
