Sample Video: Introduction to Dog Care

Prevention of accidents is very important, and the correct care for your dog can prevent it from getting hurt or becoming ill. On this course, we discuss different things you need to think about when you get a dog or puppy. This course is aimed to go alongside our pet first aid course to look at caring for your dog rather than dealing with an emergency.

Dogs are great fun and will be a friend to you and your family, but there are a few things you can learn to make their lives more enjoyable.

This course comes with 2.0 hours of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this. Total course time includes 49 minutes of video training as well as knowledge reviews, final test, remedial help and reviewing downloaded material.

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence Based Learning statement.

What People are Saying

“Enjoyed the course. Even after looking after my dog for 12 years I still learnt interesting things with regards to first aid. I've just started dog grooming so my next course will be the canine first aid course. Then customers can feel happy and confident leaving their dogs in my capable hands.”

- Debbie, Dog groomer from Wirral

“Very easy to follow the videos were both fun and informative”

- Kimberley, Animal Care from Lancashire
