Have you heard about Irish Guide Dogs? yes. It’s a national charity that happens to be based in Cork at the very end of Model Farm Road, just before the Ballincollig.
In two weeks time on Saturday 29th August dog training centre will hold its Annual open day from 12pm to 4pm.
The day is a great opportunity to meet and interact with puppies in training and working dogs, such as Guide Dogs for people who are visually impaired and Assistance Dogs for children with autism.
The day gives the general public a real insight into the workings of the centre and the great work the working dogs do. There will be dog parades and a puppy Olympics, a farmer’s market, craft fair, food stalls, bouncy castles, face painting and lots of other children’s entertainment. There will also be Guide Dog and Assistance Dog guided walks.
Admission at the gate will be €5 for individuals, or €10 for a family.
