Open days

From June 2021, we will again offer our popular visiting days.

We can now start organising our open days again, with immediate effect, in line with the current hygiene regulations and requirements for contact tracing.

Five time slots are available for guided tour bookings on each open day (9am, 10.45am, 1.00pm and 2.45pm). Guided tours are organised in groups of a maximum of 20 people and last for one and and forty five minutes.

Please register well in advance if you would like your guided tours to be run in French or English; we will offer the commentary in your own language wherever possible.

The Swiss Federal Government’s requirements mean that we can only put these open days on if you register in advance, with your contact details. Guests of visiting days and guided tours are also required to wear masks.

Thank you for your understanding – we look forward to your visit.

What happens on a guided tour

  • An information film produced by Max Emmenegger, called “Zusammen unterwegs (Travelling together)”: 21 minutes.
  • A guided tour of the facilities, where you can see dogs in training.
  • A display, showing a guide dog at work in the obstacle garden.

Guided tours for people interested in fostering our dogs

We run two guided tours on every open day for people who are interested in fostering dogs (9am, 10.45am). Advance registration and an agreed appointment are absolutely essential.
