Doggy Tales and Crafts at Dunstable Library

On Wednesday, I had a paw-some time at Dunstable library, reading some of our favourite doggy stories to the children. We enjoyed reading "Have You Seen Elvis?" and realised how important it is that our dogs wear collars, just in case they get lost!

Then we REALLY enjoyed "No!" (mostly because it meant shouting NO as loud as we could inside the library!), but it also helped us to learn about positive training and the need to reward our dogs for good behaviour.

Our final story, "Don't Lick The Dog" helped us to understand how dogs feel and how we should behave around them to help us stay safe.

After all of this excitement, we had a good rummage through the "Bag of needs" to have a look at some of the other things dogs need to keep them happy and healthy. The children were able to have fun and go mutts! practising some important responsibilities that come with owning a dog, using my doggy Chloe! Then everyone had a go at becoming dogs themselves, after creating a doggy mask to wear and take home.
