Cost: $85. Includes a Handbook, Certificate and Pocket Card. Certification is for two years from course date. 

What our graduates are saying:


"I work at a dog daycare, and we have two dogs of our own so we believed we really needed to know this information. The class was very hands-on and exciting." 


"I'm a Groomer. My customers really appreciate that our Staff are trained for any emergency. Definitely attractive to new customers. We display our Certificates in our lobby."


"We're starting a pet boarding facility and felt we needed to be trained. Great class and really hands-on. Dave's a fun teacher."


"Dave came to our facility and trained all our employees. He brought everything he needed to train 16 people! We'll keep using him as we grow."


"Thanks, Dave for your help and advice. I'm much more confident with my dog and his seizures."

Pet CPR and First Aid


Actual 911 Call:


"911. What is your emergency?"

"My dog was just got hit by a car!"

"Is any person injured?"

"No. My dog got hit by the car!"

"Is the dog blocking traffic?"

"No. He's on our lawn. He's really hurt. What do I do?"

"I'm very sorry. Please contact your Veterinarian and transport your animal to the nearest emergency Vet facility."


Truth is, there's no 911 for pets. Knowing what to do in an emergency is critical to your pet's chances of surviving a serious accident. Whether you're a concerned pet-parent or a pet care professional, will you know what to do if a pet:


  • Is choking on that new rawhide you just gave him?
  • Was stung multiple times by wasps?
  • Is hit by a car and has broken her leg?
  • Has a sudden and violent seizure?
  • Collapses during your morning run?
  • Stops breathing and you can't find a heartbeat?
  • Has a fight at the dog park and is bleeding from an open wound?
