Has your family recently grown with the addition of a new puppy or adopted dog?  Would you like to know how to keep your dog happy, learn more about their behaviours and understand how to behave safely around dogs? 

Yes - then these online family workshops are pawfect for you!  

In partnership with Essex Libraries, Dogs Trust are hosting 4 workshops during half-term to teach you how. The free workshops are delivered by experienced Education Officers via Zoom and last approximately 45 minutes. Places are limited to 6 families per session and a parent or carer must be present throughout as unaccompanied children cannot join in.  

The workshop dates and times are: 

  • Monday 26 October 1.30pm - FULLY BOOKED
  • Tuesday 27 October 10am - FULLY BOOKED 
  • Tuesday 27 October 1.30pm

We’re sorry and disappointed not to have Dogs Trust visit libraries as they have previously, but these online workshops are a great alternative!
