Dogs Trust Merseyside is offering local primary schools free workshops to teach children how to stay safe around dogs and how to be a responsible dog owner.
Dogs Trust Education and Community Officer, Angela Madigan, says:
“Dogs Trust is committed to making sure we can live happily alongside dogs at home and when we’re out and about, so I deliver fun free workshops in primary schools throughout the year and would love to work with more schools in the area.
“In our range of workshops we teach children how to safely interact around dogs and how to behave more confidently and safely around them.
“We hope that by helping young people understand how to behave around dogs we can help everyone stay safe and enjoy all the benefits a canine companion can bring.”
The workshops support a range of curriculum subjects and are inclusive of pupils’ needs. If you would like to discuss booking a workshop at your school or a local community venue, please call Angela on 0151 949 5517 or e-mail her at [email protected] To find out more visit www.bedogsmart.org.uk
