This month, dog owners, potential dog owners and dog fans are in for a treat as Dogs Trust Salisbury opens its doors for a fun open day.
The ‘Discovery Day’ event, to be held at the Salisbury Rehoming Centre in Newton Tony, will run from 12pm to 4pm on Tuesday, 13th February. The free event is designed to provide a real insight into the range of services Dogs Trust offers.
Visitors can look forward to learning about various Dogs Trust initiatives such as the Dog School, Behaviour Support Line, their popular fostering programme, and their educational services:
Dogs Trust Dog School
In person and virtual training classes for you and your pooch. Classes cover all ages, from puppy to adult dogs, and are tailored to the age group to best meet your needs.
Dogs Trust Education and Community Officers offer free workshops for primary schools, with fun sessions to promote safe and responsible interactions between children and dogs. In addition to this, a wealth of resources are available for all ages to learn about dogs.
Every Dogs Trust rehoming centre has a dedicated behaviour team who work with the dogs to give them the best chance of success on their journey to find their forever home.
Canine Care Card
This is a free service that anyone can sign up to. The Canine Care Card service provides the peace of mind that should anything happen to you, Dogs Trust will care for your dog(s) – giving them the care they need and deserve.
The Salisbury rescue centre’s knowledgeable staff will be available to field questions on the day as well as share insights into their work. There will also be a Tombola, exclusive Dogs Trust merchandise for sale, and a selection of refreshments.
Justine Salkeld, the Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust, said: ‘We are really excited to host our Discovery Day this February. It is a great opportunity for the public to learn about our fantastic work, explore our rehoming centre, and chat to our amazing staff. It will be a fun event for dog owners and dog lovers alike – we look forward to welcoming everyone on February 13th.’
