Join the Six-Legged Fun Walk to support Dogs Unite!
Dogs across Scotland are gearing up for special 'walkies' on Saturday May 20th at The Four Seasons Hotel, St Fillans
The Perthshire hotel is hosting a special, sponsored walk in the hope of raising money for Guide Dogs UK. This isn't your everyday walk though; it's your chance to sniff out more trees, have great fun and find more reasons to slobber!
The event promises to be a fantastic day for all the family and their pets; who can even get dressed up in their own superhero cape! Join in the excitement and walk with your dog to show support for a charity that provides help for those in the UK who are visually impaired.
Andrew Low, owner of The Four Seasons, is thrilled to be raising money for Guide Dogs, "This is something fun to do with our favoured companions, in a wonderful setting and for a great cause!"
The fun walk is five kilometres long and reasonably flat - perfect for beginners and the more senior K9s! The route will begin at The Four Seasons Hotel and take walkers along the old railway line, with views of the beautiful Loch Earn, before returning back to the hotel for K9 refreshments -we might even find a treat for those on the leads if they have behaved impeccably during the day.
The Four Seasons Hotel has a huge place in its heart for dogs; they are treated like royalty when they come to visit. The hotel's Pet Concierge service can offer a full grooming service, dog walker/pet sitter, personalized pet listening service, a delicious canine menu and a Pet Butler!
There are many ways to get involved in raising awareness and supporting Guide Dogs and the charity are forever appreciative of the involvement of businesses like The Four Seasons.
Alternatively, if you cannot make the event, but would like to show your support, you can donate at this dedicated Just Giving page online at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/The-Four-Seasons-Hotel*

The Four Seasons Hotel in Perthshire Scotland is situated in a picturesque setting on the banks of Loch Earn. The natural beauty of this location is the first delight for every visitor to St. Fillans, and the position of the Four Seasons, looking south-west down Loch Earn, is one of the most enviable settings in Scotland. The views from the hotel are ever-changing throughout the seasons: fresh new colours of spring, long, light summer's evenings, spectacular sunsets to the west, morning mists shrouding the loch and the snow covered Bens. The hotel is a perfect wedding and honeymoon venue and is licensed for civil weddings too. With wedding packages available you can make you day extra special. Enjoy great dog walks in some of Scotland's finest scenery. Resident pet friendly canines welcome fellow pets free of change; please see their Pet Concierge Service for further details. They also offer self-catering accommodation in the form of an apartment. This has one double and one twin room as well as a sitting room, compact kitchen and bathroom. You can always eat in their fine dining restaurant or bar if you want a rest!

Did You Know ....
Guide Dogs UK have been expertly breeding and training guide dogs for more than 75 years, providing many thousands to blind and partially-sighted people of all ages and from all walks of life. They also deliver confidence-building rehabilitation services to adults, young people and children - including long cane mobility training and communication and daily living skills. Impairment is a fact of life for thousands of people, and with an ageing population many more will be affected by sight loss in the future. Guide Dogs campaign alongside visually-impaired people for rights that most sighted people take for granted. These include access to services and transport, freedom of mobility, and provision of better rehabilitation services. Working closely with guide dog owners, service providers, other voluntary organisation and MPs, they have won major victories and have successfully lobbied to influence policies and legislation. Guide Dogs carry out research that provides sound scientific evidence on which to base their services, campaigns, policies and operational procedures.
