When people think of first aid, they often do not think about their pets. Pets have accidents the same as humans and knowing what to do should the worst happen is a simple thing to learn with basic training. Pet first aid is not aimed to replace veterinary care but it will help you to recognise an emergency, calm your pet and reduce the risks of delayed treatment.
Learning pet first aid is fun and informative and will give you the skills to deal with a pet emergency should it arise.

Nick has worked with animal rescue for many years and has a wealth of real time experience with a large variety of animals. During the course he will give you an insight into this world and practical applications of real First Aid.

Fantastic day, great way of teaching, explained everything in a very easy to understand way.
Thank you for being patient and making the course material clear for me as I struggle sometimes as I’m autistic and have ADHD so struggle with attention. Very friendly, lovely sandwiches. Excellent Course.
Nick has been a brilliant instructor and easy to learn from. The amount of experience he shared with us was beyond the course materials. Fantastic days learning.
Very well presented. Easy to listen to and understand.
Well presented course. All ad-hoc questions could be answered. Loved the real life experience that Nick brought to the training. Excellent and thank you.
Brilliant and fun training.
Excellent course and enjoyable. Great Interactive sessions.
Covered a very wide range of topics. All delivered clearly and with good humour. Fun and informative. Friendly and plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
This was a very well organised/structured, easy to understand course. It was interesting and relatable to situations that could occur. I would definitely recommend this course for dog owners and those working with dogs. Really enjoyed. Thank you.
I attended the Canine First Aid course and it was fantastic! Nick is incredibly knowledgable, passionate and engaging and did a great job at making it fun! I’d highly recommend this course to anyone who owns a dog as it’s great to know I’m prepared, should the worst ever happen! Thank you so much Nick, I’ll definitely be back!! 😉
The First Aid course I attended was led by Nick. It was conducted in a very professional manner but at the same time very relaxed. Nick is very clear and explains everything in an easy-to-understand fashion. The demonstrations of how to give CPR were very enlightening and then to be able to practice on the artificial dog, along with showing where to feel for pulse was super. Another major instruction that I found useful was actually how to apply dressings in various locations of a dog's body. I would thoroughly recommend this as a basic course in First Aid.

Just wanted to give you some feedback for the first aid course. I thought it was a brilliant course and that Nick delivered it really well. I like the fact that Nick shared his own experiences with us and encouraged us to share our own experiences and ask questions. I particularly like the way we were encouraged (but not forced) to have a go at the CPR and rescue breaths as to be honest this is something I was quite nervous about. I am so glad I was made to feel comfortable enough to have a go as I really found it beneficial and it has given me the confidence should I ever have to do it in real life. Thanks very much to you and Nick for a great day 😊
