Information day event: Where and when?

📍The Buckland Centre, Gilbert Road, Newton Abbot, TQ12 4HS

🗓 Thursday 7th July 2022, 11:00 – 15:00 BST


Come to our free information event where you can find out about our new business that will be launching soon, Bales Buddies Therapy Dogs Community Outreach. Bale’s Buddies Therapy Dogs, a not-for-profit organisation, was first established in 2016 after identifying a need for animal assisted therapy to support vulnerable people across Devon. Bale’s buddies currently concentrates on training 1:1 family therapy assistance dogs and school therapy assistance dogs, settings dealing with autism and additional needs, however we are now looking to broaden our services into the wider community. After seeing the positive impacts therapy dogs have including reducing anxieties, communication building, independence, reductions in self-harming, etc., we want to provide others with the same therapeutic support. As a result, we have founded a new organisation, Bale’s Buddies Therapy Dogs Community Outreach.


We’re holding an information event which will be open to individuals within the community as well as local businesses, to view and talk about our services (deep pressure therapy, appointment attendance, residential home visits, etc.), sponsorship opportunities and provide the opportunity to book therapy sessions. We want to highlight the options and services available to individuals and groups whilst showcasing our wonderful community dogs and their abilities, beginning building that all important relationship. Businesses will be able to discuss sponsorship opportunities as well as the benefits scheme we have in place.


Cakes and coffees will be for sale alongside a raffle and ‘Win a Trip’ with all proceeds going towards the community outreach project. If you are interested, please book a time slot here:
