Local pooches Taz & Meg have had a fantastic day spent on campus today! They started off the day with our Dog Grooming students being primped and preened, then after lunch they completed some dog agility with the Level 1 Animal Care students. Now they have just been for a long walk with Level 1 Work Skills students as part of their Animal Handling module. A fantastic day for both animals and students! 🐶🐾🐕
It’s that time again! #FactFridays at Newton Rigg College
Jamie Normington from Cumbria Wildlife Trust came into college to talk to Entry Level about wildlife habitats. Jamie started by showing a stuffed badger and we had a discussion about culling and biosecurity as ways to stop the spread of Bovine TB. Jamie also explained that badger’s eating hedgehogs by using their claws to turn it over and peel it like a banana. The students then took Jamie on a tour of the campus to look at different habitats already here and together they discussed the advantages of such habitats. The students really enjoyed the visit - Thank you Jamie!
We have a few grooming sessions available before Christmas at the Dog Grooming parlour. Please call us on 01768 893619 to book your dog in!
