Learn about dogs
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can teach kids to be safe with dogs.
Animates have partnered with the Kids Safewith Dogs Charitable Trust to bring free sessions teaching children dog safety and the correctway to interact with dogs.
Animates stores across the country— including Mount Maunganui and Tauranga— will be hosting sessions on October 4 and October 11 at the stores at 11am and 2pm.
Staffwill run the sessions and guide children through real-life scenarios, and teaching correct behaviour with their own dogs and the dogs they see on the street.
The sessions will cover how to approach a dog, how and where to pat a dog, making eye contact with a dog and body language as well as learning to ask permission before approaching a dog. Staffmemberswill be available for questions.
The sessions are free and
