Get Started

This veterinary approved and accredited online course is suitable for pet professionals, e.g. dog walkers, vet nurses, groomers, dog carers, dog trainers/behaviourists, etc, fulfilling continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. Also suitable for dog owners. Covering a range of topics with video demonstrations, downloads to keep, tutor help if you need it and a final accredited course certificate.

The aim of this course is:

  • Recognise and respond to a range of first aid situations.
  • Carry out a safe assessment of the dog.
  • Respond to a range of first aid situations.
  • Carry out basic first aid treatments whilst waiting for veterinary attention.

This course concentrates on the dog although many of the first aid principles apply to other mammals too as the body systems work in a very similar way.

1. The course recognises that the veterinary surgeons act 1966 restricts the diagnosis and treatment of an animal by another person other than a qualified and registered veterinary surgeon. However any lay person can carry out first aid in an emergency situation.
2. For all first aid cases, a veterinary surgeon should be contacted as soon as possible.
The course is not designed to replace veterinary treatment.

Good course

Comprehensive course from which I learnt a lot. Obviously not the same as a ‘live’ course with real animals but still very useful. The video demonstrations were particularly helpful. Thank you Caroline.

First Aid for Dogs

This first aid course is excellent, and very comprehensive. I found it easy to navigate and I liked the idea that you could save progress as you went along, meaning that you could study at your own pace. The Video tutorials were clear and informative. I like that there are downloads and printouts to keep on file for future use.

I’m a pet owner and not a professional but still I found this course to be understandable and enjoyable. The course videos are a perfect addition to better interpret the content and how to put it into practice. I will be recommending this to anyone I know with a dog!

Very informative course.

Topics were broken down so that even those with no education in this field can understand it. I feel more equipped to deal with any emergency that arises with my own dogs and I enjoyed the relaxed way I was able to complete this course without any pressure or deadlines. Thank you Caroline!

Great course - full of informative content.

The information was interesting and informative, whilst being well structured and simple to comprehend. It was good to be able to come back to the course whenever I wanted to and take it at my own time and the videos and diagrams were helpful in backing up the information. I feel more confident I could take care of my own dogs and the dogs I work with in an emergency now. Thank you Caroline.
