School holidays are just around the corner, and for the first time, Animates is partnering with ‘Kids Safe with Dogs’ to provide the perfect activity to help educate children how to behave around dogs.

Your local Animates store will be hosting free seminars at 11am on Thursday 5th and 12th of October. Trained staff will use interactive real life scenarios, using a toy dog, to teach children how to behave around their own dog, and those that they encounter on the street.

Key points will include:

o   How to approach a dog (when tied up, when eating, when in a car etc.)

o   How and where to pat a dog

o   How to make eye contact with a dog including best body language to use

o   Learning the importance of always asking permission before approaching a dog

These sessions will also be beneficial you’re thinking about introducing a fluffy friend to the family.

There will also be the opportunity to ask the in-store experts for advice, and children who complete the workshop will take home a free activity book and certificate to proudly display on their wall or fridge.

Although bookings aren’t necessary, the events are usually well attended so it’s advisable to arrive early.

With best wishes,

Your local Animates team
