The fun of interacting with these delightful Tibetan Terriers is not restricted to children with health problems or developmental disabilities.

Paws Beyond Compare runs workshops in which all children can undertake something similar to an agility course with dogs.

In the lead up to Christmas a series of four workshops is planned, aimed at children from seven to 12, on Saturday, November 21 and 28 and December 5 and 12, finishing with a presentation to family members on Saturday, December 19 (all from 10am to 2pm). The total cost is £85 per child for all sessions.

In addition, there is a workshop on Saturday, December 5 (3-5pm) for children aged seven to 14 at £6.

The money from workshops supports the charity. The rest of the funding comes from sponsorship, and the women have some large sponsors in Germany – such as Rotary and the big banks.

Their next task is to source sponsorship in this country.
