Dogwalk Dubai and Reading Dogs UAE are running a dog-training workshop for kids

Children can learn how to train their four-legged friends at this Dubai-based pet facility in Al Quoz.

Got kids and a family pooch? Then this cool new dog training will be worth going walkies for.

On Saturday February 1 between 1pm and 5pm, young animal-lovers will get the chance to discover more about man's best friend and how they can help to look after and care for their family pet.

Dogwalk, which provides everything you need for your fur baby from boarding and daycare to grooming and rehabilitation, is holding a first of its kind workshop to teach little pet owners how to train their hounds.

The session is for kids over eight with a view to teaching them about the do's and don't's around dogs, plus will help them to handle the dogs safely, tell them what to watch out for in terms of their pet's health, give instructions on feeding and will also provide them with the know-how on some basic training tips.

So that's the dogs sorted, now how do we train the kids?
Dhs190. Sat Feb 1, 1pm-5pm. Warehouse 1, Street 4, Al Quoz Ind 4, Dubai, www.dogwalkonline.com (04 347 4147).
