The star of Made In Chelsea is helping Guide Dogs for the Blind find more homes for adorable guide dog puppies. Guide dogs can make a huge difference to people’s lives, helping them through daily life and being a trusty companion. The journey to becoming a guide dog starts as soon as puppies are born.

This year Guide Dogs have had an unusually high number of puppies being born. National Lead for Puppy Walking at Guide Dogs, Sue Richardson, said: “We’ve had an unusually high number of guide dog pups born this spring and summer, so we’d like to hear from anyone interested in becoming a puppy walker as soon as possible.’

This means that the search to find more volunteers to take on these puppies for their first year of life. It’s difficult enough to get people to make such a big commitment, so finding more volunteers this year will be a challenge.

Lucy Watson is helping by spreading the word about Guide Dogs saying ‘I love dogs and I think it’s great that you can sign up to be a puppy walker and play a vital role in a guide dog puppy’s training. Not only do you get to shape the first year of a guide dog pup’s life, but you know that you’re helping to change the life of someone with sight loss.’

Some people fear that if they took on a puppy they wouldn’t be able to give it up at the end of the agreed period. However, when you see the bond that the guide dogs have with their owner and witness a dog you have trained take on the job you will understand. People who take on these puppies couldn’t be more proud if their dog passes and gets to make someone’s life so much better.

Volunteers are asked to look after a puppy from six weeks old until they reach 12-14 months old. This is nowhere near as big of a commitment as having a puppy or dog of your own, that can live between 10 and 20 years.

Volunteers are expected to look after the puppy in their own home, train them and also get them used to lots of different situations. You don’t need to pay anything towards the care and upkeep of the puppy if you take on a guide dog. You can have a dog for free, the only thing you need to give is your time and dedication to the cause.
