When people think of first aid, they often do not think about their dogs. Dogs have accidents the same as humans and knowing what to do should the worst happen, could literally be a life saver for your dog. Dog first aid is not aimed to replace veterinary care but it will help you to recognise an emergency, calm your dog and reduce the risks of delayed treatment.
During this 4-and-a-half hour Accredited and Certified course, Nick makes learning dog first aid fun and informative and he will give you the skills to deal with a dog emergency, should it arise. The course consists of both theory and practical elements.
Nick has worked in animal rescue for over 30-years and has a wealth of real life 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.
Our approved Centre provides a recognised Certified Accreditation and Certificate that is valid for 3-years. This course is suitable for both Dog Owners and Professionals. Refreshments provided.
You will receive a Certicate in the post approx 1 week to 10-days after the course (depending on the postal service at the time).
