Tune in to ITV’s The Pet Show this Sunday

If you're not already glued to The Pet Show on ITV every Sunday, make sure you watch this week – the programme features PAT Volunteers and their dogs at HMP Oakwood, a G4S prison in Staffordshire.

The volunteers are prison staff who are registered with PAT, and along with their own assessed pets, provide therapy visits for inmates. The PAT Teams facilitate the interventions and actions that the prison already have in place to help rehabilitate prisoners.

Joining presenters Dermot O'Leary and Joanna Page this week is guest Michelle Collins. The former EastEnders actress is taking part in Ready Pet Go and will be putting her dog through its paces on the show's agility course.

The Pet Show is on ITV on Sunday 21 November at 5.30pm.
