Pet CPR and First/Aid Certification

CPR and First Aid Certification registration closes on April 10, 2022

During the first part of the day, you will learn CPR techniques and first aid skills, as well as health and wellness information for dogs and cats.  The class includes our 40-page handbook and upon successful completion, each participant will receive a certificate (good for 2 years) and wallet card.  

The second portion of the day will be about handling difficult and senior dogs during grooming. You will learn how to handle grooming dogs who bite, thrash, and gator roll and desensitize dogs who have shown fearful aggression towards grooming. Nicole will teach groomers to gain the trust of a nervous dog during grooming, including the “pandemic dogs”, with proper and safe restraints and also know when enough is enough. 

We will be offering a 5 hour CPR/First Aid class, followed by a 3 hour Difficult and Senior Dog class.  Snacks and drinks will be provided.
