Guide Dogs

Boarding is a good volunteer job for someone who likes dogs but doesn’t want a ‘full time’ dog. The Guide Dog training school in Manor Road is looking for local families to become ‘boarders’ & give dogs a temporary home while they are being trained. The dogs are mostly Labrador & Golden Retriever crosses & need a home for periods of anything up to about 4 months. The dogs are tired after their day at school & so don’t need exercising in the evenings. Once they have settled they can be taken out & about at weekends but shouldn’t be left alone at home for more than 3 hours. Guide dogs supply all food & equipment needed by the dogs.
