In need of a little pre-weekend pick-me-up? This should do it. Prepare for cuteness overload when a crew of fluffy pups descends on Martin Place next Friday, November 16, to teach city-dwellers all about the NSW guide dog program.

Running from 12–2.30pm — yep, perfectly timed for lunch-break cuddles — Guide Dogs in the City will feature a trio of adorable events, celebrating the hardworking fluffers who are changing lives around the country.

The fun kicks off with a couple of puppy preschool sessions (at 12pm and 1.10pm), where you'll get to see some of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT's newest recruits learning the ropes. Then, two Guide Dog demonstrations (12.40pm and 1.40pm) will dive into the training process, highlighting all the steps that go into raising and teaching these pups.

And from 2pm, you'll have the chance to make some very cute new besties during a puppy patting session. Get lots of cuddles. Take lots of photos. Look at them all afternoon when you're back at your puppy-less desk. And then, if you're ready for the responsibility, maybe consider applying to be a puppy raiser.
