RSB Pup in Training, Disco, Named Discovery Holiday Parks' First Four-Legged ambassador.
Royal Society for the Blind pup-in-training, Disco, is destined to become South Australia’s number one canine tourist, thanks to the generosity of Discovery Holiday Parks.
As their first four-legged ambassador, Disco will spend his first year learning how to holiday in style at Discovery Holiday Parks across the state, as part of his training to become an RSB Guide or Assistance Dog.
RSB Guide and Assistance Dogs accompany their owners everywhere, including on public transport, in shopping centres… and on holidays. To spread the word that Discovery Holiday Parks has pet friendly accommodation across SA, Disco will be road testing holiday cabins from Robe to Whyalla, Clare to Streaky Bay. One of Disco’s duties will be hosting ‘pet parties’, where guests and locals can bring their dogs to meet Disco and learn some training tips.
Discovery Holiday Parks CEO, Grant Wilckens, says, “Discovery is famous for creating good times and great memories across our extensive network of pet friendly holiday parks. We are committed to enabling all Australians to holiday with us; whether you have a vision impairment or other special needs, or just can’t imagine your family holiday without Fido - we are ready to make your holiday memorable”.
RSB Executive Marketing and Fundraising Manager Darrin Johnson is equally enthusiastic. “Knowing that your guide dog is not just tolerated, but openly welcomed, is a fantastic thing for someone who is blind. Discovery Holiday Parks have been extremely generous in covering the cost of raising and training Disco and we are looking forward to helping spread the word that their parks are a pawsome holiday destination for all pet lovers too”, he says.
