Responsible dog ownership is a workshop away

Sefton Council has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help promote its ongoing Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) across the borough.

A workshop to promote the PSPO and the Good Dog Code will take place on Wednesday, February 6 at the Bootle YMCA. The event will set out to encourage 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  event will take place at Bootle YMCA, park street L20 9AD, Wednesday, February 6, from 11am to 3pm.
