As part of the Professional Dog Walkers Welfare Code, issued by the Government of Jersey, it is advised for professional dog walkers to be trained in dog first-aid.
We are excited to announce that the JSPCA is now offering a First Aid Course for Professional Dog Walkers. If you are not a professional dog walker, yet still wish to learn about First Aid in dogs, then you are also welcome on this course.
You can choose from one of four dates:
12th October, 19th October, 16th November, 23rd November
All courses take place from 6pm – 8pm at the JSPCA Animals’ Shelter, 89 St Saviour’s Road.
What will you learn?
- Recognising an emergency
- What to do in an emergency
- Preparing for an emergency
- Contents of Pet First Aid Kit and their usage
- Recovery Position
- Common situations for first aid, the clinical signs and what first aid measures to take
- How to check a dog’s vital signs
The cost of the course is £45 (+ booking fee)
All of the funds raised goes to the JSPCA and the work we carry out across the Island.
Classes are limited so it is a first come first served basis. Please follow this link to book your place:
This will be taught by one of the JSPCA’s Registered Veterinary Nurses and you will be given a certificate at the end of the course to show your attendance and completion.
