I have recently experienced my dog having a life threatening accident and, although I coped well and he survived, I would like to be more prepared for this situation if it were to occur again in the future. I would like to extend this oppurtunity to all of you and so have arranged this course to take place in my home.

There is a £50 fee for this course, payable to myself via paypal (or cash or cheque if you contact me to organise this) which I will then forward on to Pauline, the course instructor. Payment must be recieved by Sunday the 30th of September. Once payment is recieved, you will recieve you're first aid manual via e-mail which you must print and bring with you to the course.

Refreshments will be provided, however I would ask that you bring lunch along with you. Obviously you can use my kitchen for any preperation you may need.

What would you do if there was an emergency situation with your dog?Would you know how to deal with cut, broken bone, burns, shock, car accident, chocking, heatstroke, puncture to the dogs body’s, fits, drowning, etc.Learn the skills needed to deal with your beloved pet, or someone else dog.You may save a dog’s life using first aid.Become a Canine first responder.This first aid course is open to the dog loving and is also available to people working within the canine field such as Pet sitters, dog walkers, show dog owners, working dogs, trainers, dog handlers, behaviour consultants, kennel managers and assistants, collage students. Groomers, Breeders, Canine Clubs, Boarding, Rescue Facilities.The course follows the same protocols vets would use if they were first on the scene of your canine emergency so you will be safe in the knowledge that you have done exactly what the vet would have done if he were on the scene first. We use the latest in audio visual technology to enhance the learning experience. You will get hands on practise with the latest canine CPR manikin and have fun at the same time.

    Just a reminder that the course fee is due soon as I need to get it to the instructor with enough time for her to send you your manuals.
    Evelyn, I know you just need to get it to me.
    Carol, just needs to be paid by the end of the month. Paypal, bank transfer or cash is fine. If you want to pay by cheque, I'll need it in the next couple of weeks.
    Really looking forward to this now :-)
