The Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid course is the longest standing in Canada. You get 10 hours of fun while learning how to be a first aid responder for your cat or dog in an emergency. The course also focuses on prevention and emergency treatment. We always have a demonstration pet with us for practice, and well behaved pets are welcome with the understanding that the owner is responsible for their behaviour in class. You receive a comprehensive manual, created with input from veterinarians, a quick guide, and a certificate on passing the exam. Not to mention LOTS of knowledge and practical work on a real wiggly pet. 

Topics include (along with many more) :

  • Artificial Respiration and CPR
  • Choking
  • Bleeding and wounds
  • Recognizing and preventing illness
  • Bone and joint injuries
  • Parasites and poisons

Sign up now! Seats are limited!

The course is $150 + HST ($169.50). Pre-registration is required and seats are limited.

We now offer the Walks ’N’ Wags Off The Grid course.

Does your pet go everywhere with you?

Off The Grid is an extension to the Walks ’N’ Wags pet first aid course that tests your creativity in situations where you cannot reach veterinary care quickly. We increase your knowledge to help you get your furry companion to help safely over longer distances and time. Any time you’re Off The Grid 

If you have a current Walks ’N’ Wags certification you are eligible to take the three hour extension course. The course fee is $55 + HST.
