Canine First Responder Course©


Would you like to attend a Canine First Responder Course but not sure? Then come along to one of our taster sessions where you can meet the Instructors, have a play with our state of the art training aids and learn the first three of the essential skills of primary care.

The taster sessions typically last one to one and a half hours and you will be given credit for anything learnt on the taster session towards the full course. This means anything you learn on the taster will not have to be repeated when you come back for the course. We will also deduct the cost of the orientation off the full course price when you sign up for the full course. Click to register!

Note: This is not a certificated course only an orientation to the certificated course. Certification is only gained after successful attendance of a full Canine First Responder Course.
