Guide Dogs Queensland Open Day
Peek behind the scenes at tiny pups and fully trained guide dogs.
Ever wondered exactly what goes into training a guide dog? Love the idea of cute pooches helping people? Eager to spend as much time surrounded by four-legged cuties as possible? You can tick all of the above boxes at the Guide Dogs Queensland Open Day — and, given that the organisation doesn't let people peel behind the scenes often, you'll be getting a glimpse at something extra special.
From 10.30am on Saturday, September 7, you can see where the magic happens — where adorable pups grow into life-changing companions for people who are blind or vision impaired. You'll meet dogs of all ages, watch training demonstrations, learn your own name in Braille and discover how to navigate through an obstacle course without using your sight.
You can also browse market stalls, grab a bite from the onsite food trucks and check out the live entertainment. For kids, there'll also be an inflatable zone.
Tickets cost $10 for adults. The joy of being swarmed by so many puppers who'll go on to do so much good — well, you can't put a price on that.
