"An absolutely amazing course provided by Ashley. He is incredibly knowledgable and was able to provide a comprehensive unit as well as answering all of our questions. Kudos also to your effort in helping us, as students, learn and retain the information taught.
I highly recommend the Dog First Aid course to all dog owners, handlers and workers in the industry. - Emma
" Ashley makes learning and understanding the basic dog first aid training very simple, fun and interactive. I myself appreciate the time you've taken and put into giving back in helping others help care for our K9s." - Vicky
"I went to the Dog First Aid class before heading off on our Xmas beach camping trip and I’m SO SO glad I did. I knew what to look out for with heat exhaustion (needed with our endless beach days!!) etc and I’m pretty sure this training kept my puppy safe. It certainly gave me confidence in knowing I could react quickly and calmly in an event. I would absolutely highly recommend this course to anyone with a dog. Ash is awesome and clearly know his stuff!! " - Bella
Can I bring my dog?
No, as much as we would love to see your fur babes, due to human and canine health and safety, we use canine manikins for all training.
Will there be a written test?
No, we use practical assessments for this course.
Is this course for anyone that has a dog or just for vets etc?
This course is for EVERYONE who loves dogs!
Why is the course is expensive?
We have compared our prices to other pet/dog first aid course and ours is still value for money. When you look at how long other courses go for, and the cost, ours is still cheaper per hour! Not only that, our knowledge is constantly evolving, constantly being updated, reviewed and USED in the real world! Numerous companies take human first aid courses and change the name human to dog or buy into franchises….. not us!
We may be the smallest provider out of them all, but we don’t sacrifice the quality of our training and services. As the saying goes, "You get what you paid for"
