Dogs Trust Kenilworth is 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.
Keira Evans, Education and Community Officer based at Dogs Trust Kenilworth, says:
“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.
“The workshop will really help children, and their parents, get to know more about dogs. 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, must be booked in advance and will take place on 4th, 9th, 27th August
and 1st September at Kenilworth Rehoming Centre, Honiley, CV8 1NP To book a place on one of the workshops please contact Keira on
07443981753 or email@example.com. No dogs
will be in attendance at the event.
Places are limited to 20 people 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.
The workshops can also be held as part of summer clubs. If you would like to arrange a class to be held at
your summer club, please contact Keira.
