Dog lovers needed. Enfield EN3

I do free running for the Guide Dogs; I take out a guide dog, away from his/her 'owner', off harness, to just be a dog, run free and play.

Some guide dogs live in environments whereby a family member or neighbour is able to do this for the 'owner' but others do not have the option.

I free run a lovely dog in Enfield, EN3, every week. I don't live very close and the traffic is making it quite an issue fort me.

His partially sighted owner lives with her elderly and frail husband and has no family around so if i don't take him out, then he doesn't go out. He works of course, and goes out of the house, but he doesn't get to run around and play.

Can you help? I take the guide dog out with my own dog but he doesn't need the company; he is happy just to run and run.

If you think you can help or would like more information, please ask away or PM me.

I'd love to do this, but alas it would be about an hour each way for me sad Hope you find someone to help him; perhaps you could try the Cinnamon Trust?

I never knew this was a thing! I live locally to EN3 so will ask friends.

There is a very active website and facebook page called Love your doorstep Enfield (LYDS), may be worth asking there?

Thanks for the reminder Yoko. I’ve contacted them now.
