Really interesting tour run entirely by volunteers who are knowledgeable, friendly and make it such a good afternoon. Met lots of dogs all at different stages of their training. This is an excellent afternoon and I highly recommend it for all ages.

Very interesting and beautiful dogs. It was very interesting to see every aspect of training the dogs go through. Also you can have a go at a obstacle course blind folded.

Visited the Training School, very interesting beautiful dogs. Wonderful work done by these people and the 'pupoy walkers. Also visited the Guide Dog Breeding Centre, noth in Leamington. You have to book your visit, but well worth it.
