Experience Description
£90.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

Join Guide Dogs at their training school in Redbridge, getting hands on experience and learning what it takes to turn mischievous pups into highly trained service dogs for an away day with a difference.

For an uplifting experience combining fun exercises with more serious work it's an event to remember for animal lovers. It is suitable for groups of between 8 and 12 people, though bigger groups can be accommodated by agreement. 

Ideal for team away days and team building sessions where you wish to do something more worthwhile, this experience is provided in aid of Guide dogs.

What to expect

The experience takes 2-3 hours to complete. Participants must be at least 12 years old and any children must be accompanied by an adult.

The agenda may vary but would typically include the following.....

10.00 - 10.15 Housekeeping and introductions

10.15 – 11.15 – Mini My Guide Training (learn how to guide people with sight loss) and talk from Guide Dog Owner

11.15 – 11.130 – Tea Break

11.30 – 12.30 Demo from early and advanced trainee guide dogs, including blindfold walks and the chance to meet some of our dogs close up

On completion of the My Guide Training (which is when they will learn how to guide people with sight loss) they will get a certificate which is not only a nice souvenir but also quite handy for personal/professional development too.

Our Mission

Experience Something Different is a new online experience marketplace where people can find more fulfilling things to do with their spare time. We offer unique experiences and days out in aid of great causes. A place where volunteers and other providers come together to share their interests, passions and expertise.

What's Different?

We are looking to create memorable experiences, but not the usual commercial experiences like fast car racing or hot air ballooning, and not the usual charity challenge experiences like a sponsored climb of Kilimanjaro. We are aiming to provide more fulfilling and meaningful experiences, delivered in a local, genuine and personal way.

Whether it's puppy training, screen-printing, pilates, whisky tasting, Vietnamese cookery, paddle boarding, graffiti, sourdough, learn to code, gliding, spend a day with a scientist or whatever it is, the possibilities are numerous.

Who Benefits?

Experience Something Different has been created by The Good Lab and is backed by a collaboration between nine of the UK's leading charities - Oxfam, Save The Children, Royal British Legion, British Red Cross, WaterAid, Unicef, British Heart Foundation, Guide Dogs and RSPCA.

100% of the profits generated by Experience Something Different will go to charity.
