Children will learn about the five welfare needs – shelter, food and water, good health, appropriate company and the right living environment – and even get the chance to interact with some pets in-store.

Wendy Gillard, store manager at Pets at Home Worthing, said: “Our Creature Care workshops are designed to teach young pet lovers about responsible pet ownership, while having lots of fun at the same time.

“Our expert colleagues will offer tips and advice on pet care, while making the workshops both interactive and educational - an ideal activity over the half term break.”
