We are a network of veterinary professionals and trainers with a shared 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 owners and carers we never know when an accident may happen and they will need our help.
Since 2013 we have trained thousands of people to provide the emergency care their dogs need before getting to a vet. We are so proud that in many cases this has saved the dog's life.

Learned so much useful information in a relaxed & friendly atmosphere, I now feel confident that I could deal with a wide range of first aid situations & at least be helpful in some way if not by saving a dog's life!!
I've walked away feeling so much more confident in dealing with a first aid situation and hopefully I will never need to use alot of it, but if the worst happens I now know how to possibly save the life of someones precious canine friend. I highly recommend anyone who owns a dog to take this course.
