Event Details

This comprehensive 6-hour course has been designed to give dog owners and those involved in canine related professions the confidence and knowledge to act decisively when faced with a canine related emergency.

The training is not designed to replace the Vet, but instead concentrates on promoting recovery where we can, preventing the injury or illness becoming worse and getting the animal to Veterinary care in as best a condition as possible.

On completion students will receive Certification, access to their own online student dashboard and a CPR shield. The student dashboard also provides access to a downloadable Pet First Aid manual and additional first aid equipment which can be purchased. Students can also opt to receive weekly video updates which are designed to keep their first aid skills up to date.

This session is also an excellent networking opportunity for dog lovers, or those working or intending to work in the canine industry such as dog walkers, dog sitters and groomers.
