Dog First Aid Training Course at the GSPCA Wednesday 630pm 22nd November 2017
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)
Each year the GSPCA help around 200 stray dogs, rehome around 50 dogs a year and help countless more from cruelty cases to owners needing assistance or advice.
As dog owners will know our four legged friends can find themselves in all sorts of situations and this course is designed to help empower dog owners with some very basic but life saving skills to help their beloved dogs if they have an accident or incident.
Every year we hear of pet owners being faced with circumstances of their pets being injured or caused harm often through no fault but an accident.
To help pet owners each year we hold a series of training courses and we run first aid courses for those interested in helping dogs and cats. Our next cat course is likely to now be in 2018 although if we have enough enquiries we will certainly run another this year.
Our next Dog First Aid course date set for 2017 is:
Dog First Aid 6.30pm - 8.45pm Wednesday 22nd November 2017 - Ref - Dog 22/11
2018 dates to be released later this year
All first aid courses are a minimum £20 donation and you must book your place by the lunch time on the day of the training session.
Within the sessions you get the chance to learn about what to do if you were faced with an emergency situation with your dog or cat. All participants receive handouts, a few goodies and a certificate.
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "With approximately 10,000 dogs in Guernsey it is important we all know what to do if a dog is sick or injured which is often getting it to the vet as soon as possible but the course enables those attending to learn CPR and other ways to help an animal in need."
"The dog and cat first aid courses are designed to help those wanting to learn how to perform life saving first aid to their pets or animals they may come across."
"We cover all aspects of first aid for pets from CPR to seizures and all for just £20 which goes towards helping the many animals in our care at the GSPCA."
