Devon based natural pet food firm, Forthglade, is\u00a0sponsoring its very own guide dog puppy. Guide Dogs was\u00a0named\u00a0Forthglade\u2019s leading charity this year. The pet food company hopes to raise awareness of the organisation.\r\n\r\nRuby, a flat coated retriever, is the newest addition to the Forthglade family. The company will be eagerly watching her progress and development as she trains to become an official guide dog.\r\n\r\nForthglade has also been busy making a number of short films to help promote the Guide Dog\u2019s great work. The company recently ran a national competition to search for a young wannabe TV presenter. The winning entrant was Grace a 10-year old from Sunderland who felt she had the X-Factor.\r\n\r\nGrace was whisked to the Guide Dogs National Breeding Centre in Leamington Spa along with a film crew, to try her hand at TV presenting and help capture a behind the scenes exclusive on guide dog puppy training.\r\n\r\nThe Centre can breed up to 1500 puppies a year and be home to 200 puppies on site at any one time. The state of the art Centre is essential to the future of the Guide Dogs charity as it\u2019s where the teams work hard to improve all aspects of the breeding programme.\r\n\r\n\u201cGrace helped us film newborn puppies, capture puppy health checks and interview guide dog trainers. \u00a0She didn\u2019t even flinch when\u00a0dozens of excitable puppies nibbled her hair and tried to pinch her script and glasses,\u201d said Rebecca Caradine from Forthglade.\r\n\r\nAs a special treat Grace and the camera crew were lucky enough to meet Forthglade\u2019s own guide dog pup Ruby, who just happened to be on site\u00a0preparing for her departure to her Puppy Walker the very next day. The short film will be shared across social media in July. Visit\u00a0www.forthglade.com for more information.\r\n\r\nFor more information on Guide Dogs visit www.guidedogs.org.uk.
