Chance for youngsters how to stay safe around four-legged friends

Evesham Editorial 11th Jul, 2021   0

STAFF at Dogs Trust Evesham are offering families the chance to take part in free classes to help children learn how to stay safe around dogs.

The interactive 90-minute sessions, which will include games, quizzes and role play, will focus on helping children understand how to behave around dogs both at home and when out and about, and how to be kind to their four-legged friends. They will also learn about how dogs communicate with their human friends.

Charlotte Paddock, Education and Community Officer based at Dogs Trust Evesham, said: “Dogs are wonderful companions but, for us to live happily alongside our canine pals, it’s vital to understand them and know how to behave around them.

“We want to help people to be comfortable, whether they’re having fun with their own dog at home or coming into contact with dogs they don’t know when they’re out and about.”

The workshops, for children aged 7-11, will take place on Tuesdays from July 27 to August 31 at Dogs Trust Evesham.

E-mail [email protected] to book.

Places are limited to 10 people due to Covid restrictions so to maximise the number of children that can take part, it is preferred that only one adult per family attends.

Bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis. No dogs will be in attendance at the event.
