I really enjoyed this course, the instructor was very friendly and i found it very informative. I'm a dog walker and feel that after being on this course i would feel more than confident if anything happened to one of the dogs. Well presented and good value for money, i would definitely recommend this course for all dog lovers.
Kate, Dog Walker
A really good course! I learnt so much and feel I could help save the life of my own dogs and those who I look after in the event of an emergency, although I hope I don't find myself in that position! For anyone who looks after a dog as a pet or in a professional capacity I highly recommend First Aid for Dogs! I feel much more comfortable knowing that I could do something to help them in different situations rather than not knowing what to do and feeling useless! Brilliant course! Thank you.
