PETS At Home has launched a ‘Kids’ Holiday Pet Club’ at its Cramlington store this summer.
The store is holding the free pet workshops for children.
These workshops not only give parents something for their children to do during the summer, but also offer the chance for children to learn the responsibilities of pet ownership.
Store manager Colin Dale said: “Our Kids’ Holiday Pet Club is a great way to give children the chance to interact with our pets in store while learning how to care for them responsibly.”
Furry Friends and Scales & Fins are the two workshops available, with Furry Friends involving Rabbits, rats, guinea pigs and hamsters and Scales and Fins involving various reptiles and fish.
The workshops take place three times a week and last around 20 minutes.
Children will also be given a free kids’ activity booklet filled with puzzles and various activities.
