Your dog is your best friend. What better way to show you care than by learning the skills you will need to help him in an emergency?
Chris Mattin is our Dog First Aid Franchisee for the Kent area.
Chris is an experienced trainer who has undergone our extensive training programme, including training with registered members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. He is passionate about educating dog professionals, and owners in Dog First Aid to promote the safety and wellbeing of their pets. Firmly believing that dogs are part of the family. Coming from a military background and also having worked as a Special Constable within the police, Chris has seen life threatening emergency situations first hand.
Chris and his wife Lorna are owned by rescue dog Cody, who has had her fair share of situations requiring first aid. This led Chris to start his journey in to becoming a Dog First Aid trainer.
Chris says, “I walk Cody every morning in a local park where there is a cross that marks the point where a 2 year old Rottweiler choked to death. The owners didn’t know what to do. Teaching people these skills is lifesaving.”
