Sefton Council have teamed up with Dogs Trust to help promote the ongoing Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) across the borough.
Three sessions will take place in parks around Sefton in the coming weeks to promote both the Good Dog Code and the PSPO which encourages responsible dog ownership in parks, greenspaces and public highways.
During the sessions dog owners and their four-legged friends will be able to meet with members of Dogs Trust’s Campaigns team for the North of England, as well as Green Sefton staff.
Sessions will include:
PSPO & Good Dog Code advice
Free healthchecks including nail clipping
Free responsible dog ownership packs
Free on the spot microchipping service
Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “These events are a great opportunity for dog owners to find out more about our Good Dog Code and the Public Space Protection Order.
“We continue to encourage responsible dog ownership throughout the borough and would urge everyone to make sure they are aware of what this PSPO entails.
“Dog owners will also be able to get a wealth of help and information from our friends at Dogs Trust too at the sessions.”
The events will take place at Victoria Park Pavillion, Waterloo (October 22), Hesketh Park Conservatory, Southport (October 30) and Duke Street Park football pavillion, Formby (November 5)
All three sessions take place from 11am to 3pm.
