ITC Emergency First Aid for Dogs and Dog Owners

Find a Course near you

/live/qualifications/Dog Compliance logo.png.jpgThere is no NHS for Dogs!

Why Dog First Aid?  Because unlike other pets, dogs travel with us pretty much everywhere we go.  Incidents away from home, walking in the countryside, road traffic incidents all will need immediate action prior to getting to a vet.  The vet ambulance does not come to you!


Topics include: Know your dog, weekly health checks, managing an incident, checking and understanding vital signs, dealing with unconsciousness, CPR, drowning, choking, illness, burns, poisons, bites & stings,  bleeding, injuries, shock, heat and cold disorders, restraints, carrying and moving techniques, dealing with aggressive/confused dog and dog bites on humans.


Training package includes:

  • 3+ hours delivery time.
  • Course notes/manual based on current best practice in UK and USA.
  • Progressive, practical skills development.
  • ITC Certificate in Emergency First Aid for Dogs and Dog Owners with 3 year lifetime.

The course itself was great and I would recommend anyone with a dog to do it,  I have certainly given a lot of feedback to others about the day.  The content was spot on and I found the day to be very upbeat with the practical side of the course.  Well worth the money.  Hopefully I will see you again with other courses or a refresher.
