ARE you worried about walking your dog on the Malvern Hills alongside the sheep and cattle?

Do you want to learn how to stop your dog from chasing livestock, children, joggers or cyclists?

If so, Malvern Hills Conservators have the answer for you.

Staring next Sunday, June 13, the guardians of the hills have organised a training course featuring qualified dog trainer and behaviourist Sue Harper.

The course focuses on controlling dogs around livestock and other moving targets. Following indoor sessions, the training continues outdoors where you and your dog will come face-to-face with friendly sheep in a controlled environment.

Sessions are held every Sunday for six weeks from 4pm to 6pm at a location near Colwall, and owners who attend each session will only have to pay £30, with the Conservators subsidising the cost.
