Athag Ltd ‘GUARDSMAN’ hand over a fully caged Land Rover Defender  to Guide Dogs


Sean Davies and Steve Adelsee from Guardsman delivered a Land Rover Defender to Guide Dogs in advance of Guide Dog week which took place between the 3rd and 11th of October.
The vehicle which was donated by Jaguar Land Rover has been vinyl wrapped and then caged out by Guardsman.
All the companies involved donated their products and time free of charge in recognition of the work that Guide Dogs do.
Sean Davies said ‘We supply Jaguar Land Rover with their vehicle dog guards and Athag Ltd. Guardsman has supplied Guide Dog’s fleet vehicles with their safety caging for over 10 years. When we were approached by Guide Dogs to help we felt that our assistance would reflect the long standing relationship between our company, Guide Dogs and Jaguar Land Rover.

  • What excellent personal service and superb quality goods. We ordered a dog guard and divider for our new car. We needed this to be partly solid as our dogs don't always get on in the car. A removable panel was designed the original divider modified and nothing was too much trouble for the company . The price was very reasonable. I will definitely recommend. Thank you, Sean, for everything
