Pet First Aid Course

Please note that ALL in person classes have been temporary suspended due to the COVID 19 pandemic. We hope to continue teaching classes as soon as it is safe to do so and will update the website when that time comes.
Confidently learn what to do in case of pet illness, injury, or emergency.

Nikki and Steph took the Walks ‘N’ Wags Pet First Aid course when starting up Dog Jogs. Not only did the course help them feel even more confident in dealing with pet emergencies, but they were shocked at how much fun the course was. They decided to become Pet First Aid Instructors and offer this course to Pet Parents and any Pet Care Professionals in and around Edmonton. They believe that knowledge and prevention is key to keeping your fur family members safe.

No previous experience necessary! During this 10 hour course we will review important topics such prevention, steps to take in an emergency, how to bandage bleeding wounds, how to perform CPR, and more.
