Loughborough Echo - - LETTERS -

DOGS Trust 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, Sarah Saun­ders, said: “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 Sarah on 07917 838332 or e-mail sarah.saun­ders@dogstrust.org.uk
