Top Ryde City Falls In Puppy Love

Service dogs are a bit of a mystery to much of the public. From “can I pet him?” to “how does she know where to go?,” people are always full of questions, questions handlers may not want to be approached with while they’re going about their days. Teachable moments are all well and good, but even better to educate as many people as possible at once.

So Guide Dogs NSW/ACT is taking its show on the road with Puppy Love, which will be stopping by Top Ryde City shopping centre this weekend. It has one element that’s certain to make it a huge crowd pleaser: puppies!

Of course, those puppies come with a hefty dose of education, but seriously: puppies. Shoppers that participate will have their photos taken with future guide dogs before they go off for training. In between playing with puppies, balloon animals and face paint, though, there are plenty of great opportunities for learning.

Not only will an inspirational Guide Dog handler come and talk to the crowd, an expert will also explain how the training and fostering process works. And to really put themselves in the shoes of the visually impaired, shoppers will have a chance to undertake the blindfold challenge, where they can attempt to navigate with a white cane and blindfold.
