'Howl' - oween fun for dog lovers

Dogs Trust Manchester is getting into the spirit of Halloween with events for dog owners and children over the spooky weekend.

Children can enjoy the spook-tacular Yucky Hunt and families can learn a few 'Tricks for Treats' with demonstrations from the Rehoming Centre's team showcasing just how the dogs have got it licked with it comes to obeying simple commands for their favourite treat.

Anna Baatz, Community and Education Officer, says:

"The Yucky Hunt will bring children up close and personal with some of the truly awful and smelly things that can occur when people don't look after their dog's health/ It's not for the faint-hearted!

"When it comes to training your dog, it isn't wizardry, it just takes time and dedication! It's all about giving them a great reward for getting something right, so we'll be showing owners just what they can achieve with their four-legged friends."

Children can enjoy the Yucky Hunt on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October and the 'Tricks for Treats' demonstrations will take place between 11am and 3pm on both days.
