It’s the time of the year again, when Guide Dogs charity is asking you to nominate a special guide dog you know for the Guide Dogs of the Year 2010 award.
Our judges will select winners in each category, before naming one dog the overall Guide Dog of the Year 2010. Winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Kennel Club in London in September.
There are three categories:
- Beyond the Call of Duty – for guide dogs that have performed a heroic act, or helped their owner avoid a dangerous situation.
- Life Changing – for guide dogs who have given their owners the mobility and confidence to take on a new challenge; e.g. going to work, trying a new hobby…or something completely different.
- Outstanding Work – for guide dogs whose work is exceptional; e.g. adapting to a new environment or circumstances, or mastering complex skills.
Nominated guide dogs must be qualified and expected still to be working in September. For full terms and conditions of Guide Dog of the Year 2010 please read our terms and conditions.
You can use this online form for your nominations or write max 500 words to:
Hillfields, Burghfield Common
by Wednesday 23 June.
If you would prefer to give your nomination over the phone, please call Hannah Robertson on 0118 983 8266.
Please remember to tell us which category you are nominating the dog for, and why, and please include your name, address, phone number, and the name of the guide dog and owner (if it is not you).
