This isn’t just about getting a certificate, this is all about being capable and confident to deal with an emergency – an incident we all hope will never happen; it could be a traffic collision or dog fight, drowning or something embedded in the dog that could result in bleeding to death, shock and cardiac arrest.

This is our professional veterinary training maniquin. We have plenty to cover the class, They are the same size as a medium dog, it has a pulse so you can learn where and how to feel for the rhythm and depth of pulse – experience the timing of the heart beat.
It has lungs so that you can give ‘rescue breaths’ ….mouth to snout.
The tongue allows you to move it, inspect inside the mouth and check the gums, all part of the general health assessment taught in the course
It is the next best thing to real CPR, experiencing the action of carrying out chest compressions.
We have realistic training aids that represent some quite nasty injuries to a dog. We train our attendees to prepare for the vet, not to replace them.
The canine first aider may need to muzzle and restrain the dog to protect themselve from being bitten. Even the nicest and most pleasant, gentle dog can snap, bite or attack when injured.
Even approaching the dog in a non-threatening manner is crucial.
Learning to dress the wound, stop bleeding and transport the dog is another part of the course.
If you care for one or more dogs. it is your duty and responsibililty to ensure you and your staff are fully trained, awarded an accredited qualificiation, not a cheap basic lesson.
Our four hour Level 2 canine first aid course is fun, friendly and geared towards using the training aids to ensure you are confident and build skills in first aid in any dog..
