Open Days

Come and see our amazing detection dogs in action and hear about the life-changing impact our medical alert assistance dogs have on the clients whose lives they save every day.

Please note that due to high demand our current programme of open days are now fully booked. We will be adding some new dates in due course. If you would like to hear about these dates first, please fill in your details below and we will contact you once these have been confirmed.

We have recently expanded our purpose-built training and research centre, located in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside. On your open day you will have the opportunity to see our dogs in action detecting the odour of disease and to hear from people whose lives are saved every day by the amazing scenting ability of a medical alert assistance dog. In order to reduce disruption to our work, tours are limited in numbers to 35 guests.

We invite you to join us for this fascinating and enjoyable experience – and can promise delicious cake. 

We rely entirely on the generosity of supporters to provide our life saving services, so there is a suggested donation of £5 for each person attending an open day.
