New Course – Canine Outdoor First Aid
We have an exciting new canine outdoor first aid course now live on our website. The 1st aid for dogs course is great for dog owners and professional dog walkers. It’s perfect for anyone who takes their dog into the great outdoors.
This is a practical course covering canine emergencies when away from help. Delivered by a Registered Veterinary surgeon who also works in Mountain Rescue.
