I am a dog owner and a First Aid trainer with a vision – to give everyone with a dog in their life the skills and confidence to act in an emergency.

There are 9 million dogs in the UK and the majority will require First Aid at least once in their life. As an owner of Hamish, a springer spaniel, I never know when an accident may happen and he will need my help.

I am confident that the skills you will learn will provide emergency care for your dogs without the need or before going to a vet. In many cases this will help to save their life.


My next level 2 canine first aid course is on 23rd September 2023.  Join Course

Contact me if you are unable to join this course but would like to join a future course.

Why do dog carers need this course?

In October 2018 DEFRA introduced new regulations to dog businesses ensuring duty of care to their dogs and now all dog businesses require canine first aid. Dog walkers should also have canine first aid certificates and carry a canine first aid kit with them on walks.

Who is this qualification for?
