The next generation of pet owners will get the chance to learn the animal-loving skills, with a series of fun, free pet workshops this summer run by Pets at Home.
The Milton Keynes and Bletchley branches are hosting the My Pet Pals Summer Activity Club, a series of free interactive pet workshops which will educate the next generation of pet owners on how to care for animals responsibly.
These workshops will cover the adventures of a gang of small furry animal characters and reptiles, who will illustrate how to look after pets, such as guinea pigs, hamsters, degus, fish and reptiles.
Chris Gabriel, deputy manager at Bletchley store, said: “This is a great way for children to learn about the importance of responsible pet ownership, whilst having fun at the same time.
“And while some may not be able to own a pet, or may have never seen certain animals in real life, they can learn, feed and care for some for free in-store.”
After completing the workshops, each child will receive a certificate and stickers, along with a pet promise card where they make a pledge to look after any pet they have according to the five welfare needs, covering habitat, health, wellbeing, diet and behaviour.
