Guide Dogs are working dogs too!

 This is a brief but important post to ask for your help in petitioning the chancellor to change the VAT rules relating to guide dog food.

At present, there is a VAT exemption on foods consumed by working dogs (currently only classified as gun dogs, sheepdogs and racing greyhounds).  If guide dogs food were exempt from VAT, Guide Dogs estimate they would save approximately £300,000 per year, this is equivalent to 6 fully trained dogs like Rochester.

You can find out more from Guide Dogs here.  You can also sign the HM government online petition

Thank you for your help.

Look at me working ... and they haven't fed me!
