Who Should Take a Course

Pet owners

We all know your pet is not ‘just a dog’, but a valued member of the family. They give us love, companionship and loyalty so should we not ensure their safety as best as we can in return? As veterinary medicine and technology have evolved, so also have the different treatments and equipment used to care for our pets. This allows them to live longer and healthier lives. The Pet First Aid Course is designed to show you how to deliver initial treatment and life-preserving techniques in the event of accident or illness of your pet, allowing you time to get them to a vet with a better chance of recovery and survival.

Pet industry professionals

Looking after someone else’s pet is a big responsibility; are you prepared? We all hate to think of something happening to an animal we are in charge of but as a professional you should at least be aware and prepared for the basic first aid requirements of the animals in your care. People want to know they are leaving their pets in capable hands. Reassure your customers and emphasise the proficient standards of your business by adding this professional qualification to your skill set. Those professionals involved in Continual Professional Development (CPD) can accumulate 3 hours towards their record.

Security Dogs - Coming Soon!

This course is approved and recommended by the regulatory body National Association of Security Dog Users (NASDU). Working security dogs, by the nature of their activities, are put in situations that risk injury. Handlers should be proficient in First Aid, not only to comply with Association and Local Authority requirements, but also for the welfare of their working animal and to help recognise and treat conditions their partner may experience to allow time to get their dog to a vet for treatment.
