WHAT TO BRING - Bring your dog’s Seeing Eye Dogs coat and your Seeing Eye Dogs lanyard with your name on it. Make sure you have poo bags, lots of treats and any walking equipment they use. You may want to bring some high value treats with approval from your PDT to assist their focus in this more stimulating environment and around the other pups.

LUNCH - On the return from our walk, we will have a group photo and then lunch. (In theory, the dogs should be exhausted!) We are asking everyone to BYO their own picnic lunch including plates and cutlery. There may be limited seating if we do not get the shelters , so please bring your chairs or picnic rug.

WE WILL PROVIDE - some individual snack packs of chips and biscuits, as well as, cans of soft drinks and bottles of water. A container of drinking water will also be available to refill your drink bottles.
