The event is organised by BrewDog and animal welfare charity, the Scottish SPCA, will also be involved. Jo-Rosie Haffenden, from the School of Canine Science, will lead the dog yoga session and the quiz offers prizes for beer lovers.

This week’s event is one of a series of online sessions called the BrewDog Open Arms, which are being held in response to the company’s network of bars closing due to lockdown.

BeerDog and the SSPCA have a long-standing relationship and the brewery funded a sensory garden for dogs at the charity’s Aberdeenshire rescue and rehoming centre.

The manager of that centre, Louise Griese, said, “We’re absolutely delighted to be involved with BrewDog’s online bar event.

“BrewDog Open Arms evenings have proved to be very popular and it’s an honour to have been invited.

“Members of the public can join for free and ask questions about their pets and find out about our fantastic relationship with BrewDog. There’s also going to be a fun quiz centred on dogs, where people can win awesome beery prizes!

“BrewDog funded our sensory garden, which is full of different scents and dog-friendly plants which encourage them to use their senses and provides mental stimulation within the surroundings. This is invaluable for the hundreds of abused, injured or abandoned dogs that arrive at the centre each year.

“Alan Grant, our behaviour and enrichment expert, will be on hand with his dog Otto to provide some tips on how to keep your dog entertained during lockdown.

“There will also be a little bit of doggy yoga for those who fancy a bit of a stretch and relaxation with their pooch!

“It’s going to be a fun and informative evening and we hope as many people as possible will be keen to join us.”

The event will take place from 6pm until 7pm. To register for this session, and all other BrewDog Open Arms sessions, visit here.
