'Howl'-oween fun for dog lovers at Dogs Trust Manchester

Dog lovers of all ages are invited to get into the spirit of Halloween, with free events at Dogs Trust Manchester.

On Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October, children can enjoy the spook-tacular Yucky Hunt and between 11am and 3pm, families can learn a few 'Tricks for Treats' with demonstrations from the Rehoming Centre's team.

Anna Baatz, Community and Education Officer (pictured with Shih Tzu Buddy), says, "The Yucky Hunt will bring children up close and personal with some of the truly awful and smelly things that can occur when people don’t look after their dog’s health. It’s not for the faint-hearted! When it comes to training your dog, it isn’t wizardry, it just takes time and dedication! It’s all about giving them a great reward for getting something right, so we’ll be showing owners just what they can achieve with their four-legged friends."

Dogs Trust Manchester is on Parkway, Denton, and is open at the weekends from 10am-4pm.
