A DOG training course for owners who walk their pets on the Malvern Hills will aim to prevent sheep worrying.

The sheep safe course of six two-hour courses run by Sue Harper begins on Saturday, November 5, at 2pm and has once again received the backing of the Malvern Hills Conservators.

Classes will be held at the Conservators’ Brockhill Road barn in Colwall with sheep provided by Matt Rouse, the northern hills grazier.

The course costs £60 and the Conservators will offer a 50 per cent refund for full attendance. For more information and to book a place call Sue Harper on 01684 568067, email sharperdogs@hotmail.co.uk or go to educating-rover.co.uk.
