Guide Dogs Fun Day

THE Guide Dogs Dog training centre in Atherton is holding its annual fun day next month and all are welcome.

There will be the chance to tour around the state-of-the-art centre, meet the dogs and find out about the work of the guide dogs on the fun day which takes place on Sunday, September 2 from 10am to 4pm.

Experience the sensation of having no vision by walking through a sensory tunnel using your sense of touch and hearing to find your way around.

People are invited to join the ‘Go Walkies’ sponsored dog walk with their pet dog which starts at 10am and is a circular walk from the training centre which will take around 45 minutes maximum to complete.

Anyone can register to take part by visiting the website www.guidedogs.org.uk/go-walkies/ or by calling 0845 600 6787.

Everyone who takes part will receive a FREE Eukanuba goody bag, a very smart Go Walkies dog tag, a certificate and will be entered into an amazing prize draw on the day for the chance to win a six month supply of Eukanuba dog food. There’s also an activity pack for children taking part too.

After the walk why not enter your pooch in our fun dog show? Only £1 per entry with lots of great prizes to be won.

There’ll be lots of other things to enjoy too throughout the whole day, a good selection of refreshments - including a hog roast, paninis, jacket potatoes, black peas, home-made ice cream and of course plenty of cakes!
