On Tuesday we welcomed 9 attendees to our GSPCA dog first aid course at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

Despite a cold, windy and wet evening the group spent the evening in the training room at the GSPCA with Manager Steve Byrne.

The attendees learnt a wide variety of ways to help dogs from those suffering with heat exhaustion to those choking.

Betty an English Bull Terrier who is looking for a home made an appearance and the group learnt how to find a heart beat.

All got a complete set of the notes,, a certificate for attending and a little toy dog to take home.

At the end of the evening the group also got a sneak peak in some of the kennels and met a selection of the dogs.

Here are the details of upcoming dates -

Cat First Aid 6.30pm - 8.45pm Tuesday 29th November 2016 - Ref - Cat 29/11

Dates for 2017 to be confirmed

All courses are a minimum £15 donation and you must book your place by 12pm on the day of the training session.

Within the sessions you get the chance to learn about what to do if you were faced with an emergency situation with your dog or cat.  All participants receive handouts, a few goodies and a certificate.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We had a lovely evening on Tuesday at the GSPCA Dog First Aid Course and looking forward to the cat first aid course this coming Tuesday."

"Between all the courses we have run in the last few years we have had trained over 200 students in first aid and animal care."

"Sadly we see thousands of sick and injured animals every year that are rescued around Guernsey and you never know when you may need that first aid knowledge to help an animal."

"We will run further courses in 2017 and will set the dates very soon."
