Alberton Retirement Village
On Thursday, 7 April 2016, members of the Alberton Retirement Village visited S A Guide-Dogs to learn more about the work that we do.
After an introductory talk about S A Guide-Dogs (GDA) by Head of Marketing, Pieter van Niekerk, and his Guide Dog O’Reilly, the group received an in-depth presentation about Guide, Service and Autism Support Dog training by Instructors Hayley Cumming, Percival Tlholoe and Vincent Seaba, accompanied by their dogs in training.
Lastly, the group went for a tour of the premises, including our currently full Puppy Block and the always busy Kennels. They were very lucky as, on the way, they also met some of the current Guide Dog owners on class, who will be graduating on Sunday, 17 April 2016.
Thank you for visiting GDA. We hope that you returned home with a greater knowledge about the work that we do and trust to see you again soon!
