Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is inviting dog owners and their dogs to a free training sessions on Saturday 22 November 2014.

The Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) team is holding a free dog behavioural session and dog walk this November.

The aim of the training is to help people to build confidence with their dogs, learn about the Special Area of Conservation and give them the tools they need to keep their pets under their control when walking at Cannock Chase.

The training is being held in the John O Leary Classroom, Cannock Chase Visitor Centre in Marquis Drive on Saturday 22 November, from 10am to 2pm.

The session will work on the bond between a dog and its handler, as well as its responsiveness in an environment such as Cannock Chase.

Ruth Hÿtch, Cannock Chase AONB Officer, said: “Cannock Chase is a fantastic place to bring your dog for a walk as it gives them the chance to have a good run about in a large area of space.

“However, we know it is sometimes difficult to manage dogs when they are excited to be let off the lead, so we are offering this free dog training session to give some useful tips about how to keep your dog under control even when it is off the lead.

“Spaces are limited so make sure you book your free place as soon as possible.”

To find out more and to book your free place, please contact Emma Beaman, Assistant AONB Officer for Cannock Chase AONB, on 01785 619186 or email
