The free dog education lesson will be held in St Helens on Monday

On Monday December 3, dog owners can benefit free expert advice from PDSA (People's Dispensary for Sick Animals) vet nurses, who will be on hand to help people to better understand about taking care of their four-legged friends.

The class will be led by the PDSA’s Community and Education Veterinary Nurse, and topics that will be covered include dog health, behaviour and welfare.

Tips on dog bite prevention and other handy safety advice will form part of the session, with reference to real life scenarios.

The event will take place from 3pm till 5pm at the Management Suite within Church Square Shopping Centre, WA10 1BN.

The event, which is free to attend, requires people to book in advance by emailing [email protected]
