Kathy is our Dog First Aid Franchisee for the Sussex area.

After undergoing extensive training with registered members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, Kathy is proud to deliver the Dog First Aid Emergency Canine Care course to like-minded dog owners and professionals who share her passion for animal welfare.

Kathy grew up with dogs, her parent’s appreciation of the natural world and their desire to help rescued animals inspiring her from a young age. Kathy now has children of her own who look set to continue the trend, her daughter being particularly concerned about conservation issues.

Kathy ran her own successful business for many years alongside raising her family but now her enjoyment of dogs, her commitment to animal welfare and her insatiable drive to ‘make a difference’ have led her back to her roots. She now has a rescue dog of her own who she gets enormous pleasure from. She is a dog trainer for her local training club, and she is studying towards a Level 5 Foundation Degree in Canine Behaviour. She also volunteers at a wildlife rescue centre.

Having a job which entails daily involvement with dog organisations and the opportunity to impart her life-saving skills to fellow animal lovers is a dream come true for Kathy. In the future, Kathy also hopes to be able to help in the rehabilitation of rescue dogs and to help owners overcome their canine behavioural problems.

Client Reviews

Tracy Crute

Have just done the emergency first aid course and it was brilliant. Kathy is a mine of information and I learnt so much. It covered everything I needed and more. I would highly recommend this course!

Nikki Venditto

I’ve just completed my course with Kathy via zoom in 3 bite sized modules. It was great! Really informative, I learnt so much! I feel much more prepared to be able to offer my dogs the initial help they may need, if they were ever in need of first aid. A course, not just for people who work with animals, but invaluable for all dog owners too. I’m so glad I signed up.

Kim Taylor

Really useful information and delivered in a relaxed environment. I wasn't sure what to expect but thought it might be too commercial or too basic but within the first few mins I'd learned lots. I came away with 12 pages of notes and although I hope I never have to use any of the first aid, just knowing things to keep an eye out for with my dogs behaviour and some of the legal elements were very insightful.
