Guide Dogs for the Blind - Buddy Dog Discovery Webinars

Buddy dogs for children with vision impairment

Improving self-confidence
Our buddy dogs bring a new friend into the lives of children with sight loss. By helping to develop their self-confidence, improve relationships and build a greater sense of trust, these dogs can have a hugely positive effect on your child’s wellbeing – and your family, too.

Buddy Dog Discovery Webinars

The webinars are for adults to learn more about the buddy dog service, what is involved and what support is provided, and to help a family decide whether welcoming a buddy dog into their lives is right for them.

Upcoming Buddy Dog Discovery Webinars:

  • Wednesday 6th April 10:20am-1pm
  • Tuesday 10th May 10:20am-1pm
  • Tuesday 7th June 10:20am-1pm
