Looking For Kind People To Board With During Training

Guide Dogs are appealing for local residents to help house dogs ahead of what will be a busy Christmas period for the charity.

More dogs due to arrive in Beverley to be trained as Guide Dogs. Now the charity needs help in finding lodgings for the dogs on a night.

Samantha Bradley, from Guide Dogs, explained more, she said;

“Our dogs love their work but they also love their time off so this is where volunteers come in. Dogs you see being trained in find a home across the region.”

“Currently we need more committed volunteers to give temporary homes to the dogs that are undergoing training. A bit like a bed and breakfast hotel for them.” 

“Boarders are needed for anything from 10 weeks to 26 weeks, overnight and at weekends. We urgently need more volunteers in the run-up to Christmas. We are due to get 11 more dogs to train.” 

“The dog will need to be dropped off each morning at work in Beverley is before 9.15 AM and then picked up at the end of the day before 5.15 PM.” 

“This is a fantastic opportunity to have the benefits of caring for a dog without the full-time responsibility.”

“Guide Dogs know that every hour, another person in the UK goes blind.  When someone loses their sight, we’re here to make sure they don’t lose their freedom as well.”

“So there is an added bonus knowing that you have been a key part in changing someone’s future by helping our trainee dogs become active working guide dogs.” 

Guide Dogs will provide all the support needed

Full training, support, food and equipment are all provided will be provided by the charity. The role is also subject to suitable references and a home visit.
