Learning your green cross code shouldn't be too difficult, but it can take time if you're a guide dog - up to two years, in fact.

But a charity here in Wales has received a donation which could speed up that process.

It's taken delivery of some old pedestrian crossing boxes to help train guide dogs.

We're now able to train in a controlled environment, without all the distractions of other dogs, people, and all the traffic going on.

So we can really get the dogs confident on finding the boxes first, before we take them out into the environment.
