Parents in St Albans are being invited to bring their kids to a series of free pet workshops at Pets at Home this summer.

The aim of the workshops at the city’s Pets at Home store is to educate the next generation of pet owners on how to care for animals responsibly.

The events will cover the needs and adventures of a whole host of furry and finned pets, including guinea pigs, hamsters, degus and fish.

Children can expect to find out about the fascinating world of each pet, learning about the five welfare needs – shelter, food and water, good health, appropriate company and the right living environment – and even getting the chance to interact with some pets in-store.

David Golder, store manager at Pets at Home St Albans, said: “The free workshops are a chance for young pet lovers to learn about responsible pet ownership, whilst having lots of fun. Our expert colleagues will be able to offer tips and advice on pet care, whilst making the workshops both interactive and educational.”
