Free pet workshops for kids in Hamilton

A series of fun, free workshops are being organised by Pets at Home, from 7th to 22nd October. Parents are invited to bring their kids to these workshops. As winter will soon arrive, the session will educate the next generation of pet owners on responsible pet care and about looing after animals during rhe cold and dark weather.

It will give them a chance to hold pet animals and teach them how to prepare smaller animals for hibernation, to wear reflective clothes for dog walking and keeping pets well-cared indoors.

The staff of Pets at Home in Hamilton, who mostly are pet owners themselves, will be running the workshops in a friendly, fun way and share their knowledge. The workshops here are part of the programme for the school holidays in autumn by My Pet Pals Activity Club of the store,
