Bridget Simms

Bridget is our Dog First Aid Franchisee for the South Midlands.

Having undergone extensive training with a registered member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Bridget is delighted to be delivering the Dog First Aid course in Emergency Canine Care and to be focussed on her passion for canine health and well-being.

Bridget feels very passionate about enabling dog professionals and owners become confident in being a first responder to provide the bridge from critical point to arriving safely into the care of the vet. If others’ are in our care, for whatever reason, Bridget believes that these most valued and loyal animals, deserve our utmost respect and we should know how to act appropriately when a dog needs first aid, to give them the best chance of survival. Bridget firmly believes that anyone owning or working with dogs should, as a minimum, have current dog first aid knowledge and skills.

From working within healthcare logistics with a focus on animal health to becoming a qualified dog trainer, a certified canicross trainer and studying canine nutrition and healthcare Bridget is well aware of the benefits for both human and canine physical and mental health and well-being through active management programmes.

Bridget is passionate about responsible dog ownership not only focussing on etiquette but also on weight management through good nutrition and exercise. Bridget works with an established veterinary group to deliver a K9 Fitness club including dietary advice and bespoke exercise plans.

Bridget discovered Dog First Aid after attending a workshop with a friend and realising how powerful the information was but also how it complimented her values and passion for proving the best possible care for her own dogs.

Bridget is well practised in presenting and training and is used to continuing professional development as part of daily working life, through her role in business.

Bridget loves walking her dogs (Alfie a 3 year old Staffie and Mabel a 2 year old Victorian Bulldog), looking after dogs, dog training, teaching canicross programmes, studying all things dog, talking about dogs, running with dogs… you get the picture. So moving into teaching life saving dog first aid to like minded people is a natural progression for her.

Thank you Bridget for a great course on Saturday in Northampton. Very informative and we all enjoyed it. Lots of great information taken away and we will be placing an order to top up our first aid kits.

Emily Kyte

I have just completed the dog first aid course and can’t recommend Bridget highly enough. The course was delivered in a clear, concise and interesting way. Bridget was very warm and I instantly felt at ease to ask any questions I had. Thanks again Bridget.

Pamper my Poochie

Absolutely thrilled with the delivery of our hosted course for Pamper My Poochie. Thank you Bridget. Your training skills are amazing, clear and precise. I am now up to date with my first aid knowledge and feel like this course was better than any course I had done before due to the extensive content, descriptions and demonstrations. The course was done via zoom due to covid I had 19 other candidates join me and collection of customers and pro dog walkers. We loved it - Thank you very much x
