Canine First Aid Level 2

A nationally recognised and accredited course, Canine First Aid Level 2 is aimed at everyone! It is ideal for dog owners or dog professionals. Understanding basic first aid for your dog will give you the skills to assist them and prevent them from getting worse before your vet gives professional help. 


With three different 'dummy' dogs to practice with, you can get hands on practical experience of CPR and a number of different ailments (the poor dogs have been in the wars!)
