Did you know that, as well as our regular First Aid for Dogs open courses, we also run two hour, in-house courses for children and young people? The courses are aimed at children who are either dog owners, or wish to become one, and cover essential first aid techniques including how to deal with choking, what to do if your dog has a broken bone, how to recognise and treat poisoning as well as CPR.
The courses are taught by qualified pet first aid instructors (who are also NHS registered nurses). They all have specialist training in CPR and first aid as well as being dog owners. All of our instructors have experience working with young people, and have undergone enhanced DBS checks.
Currently we run our in-house courses in Sussex (including Brighton & Hove, Worthing, Horsham, Littlehampton), Surrey and London, although if you are based elsewhere in the UK, do get in touch as we are extending our coverage all the time. You can find out more about the course content here.
We are also looking into running our open First Aid for Dogs courses specifically for children and young people and would love to hear from you if this is something of interest. Please take one minute to complete our quick form about your location so that we can gauge interest and popular locations.
