As part of the new Professional Dog Walkers Welfare Code, issued by the Government Of Jersey, it has been advised for professional dog walkers to be trained in dog first-aid.
The JSPCA is 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 for dogs, then you are also welcome on this course.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we do not have any courses scheduled at the moment, but we hope to be able to offer them during 2021.
More information about the course can be found below.
JSPCA Animals’ Shelter, 89 St Saviour’s Road. Parking available.
