#027 Guide Dog Puppy Walkers - socialisation training

Welcome back to the Inside Yorkshire podcast. In today's episode Susan talks again to Eileen Brereton, this time about how she became involved with Guide Dogs and about being a puppy walker for the Guide Dog association.

About the Guest:

Eileen Brereton is Coordinator for the Dales and District Fundraising group for Guide dogs but she began by starting as a puppy walker and guide dog foster carer. The first dog she took on was Kelly, who arrived at the age of six weeks and stayed with her to be socialised before moving on to be trained as a guide dog at approx 14 months. Kelly could always find M & S for her handler and another dog was expert at sourcing out Costa coffee shops. Eileen has had 6 dogs so far but doesnt have one at the moment.
