Yesterday 13 new students were trained in Dog First Aid.

With thousands of dogs kept as pets around the Bailiwick, yesterday the GSPCA held the second session with 13 new dog first aiders who spent the morning learning their ABC for dogs to what to do if their dog had a seizure.

The group enjoyed not only learning about what to do, but also got a chance to meet Mickey a Basset Hound who is at the Shelter and made a very good model and let those taking part find the heart beat.

Many of the team are very excited as tomorrow the GSPCA plans to release nine guillemots back to the wild.

Recent months have been awful for tens of thousands of seabirds who have lost their lives in the Channel.

Last night at the GSPCA the second Animal Care and Welfare Course saw another 15 graduates.

The Monday night course that started back in January has taken 8 weeks and covered a wealth of topics in caring for animals and working with them.

Last night Sarah, Sue, Siriol, Carolyn, Marilyn, Michelle, Andrew, Simon, Craig, Lisa, Hannah, Zoe, Mandy and John had their last session which covered grooming and coat care.  We also recapped the 8 weeks and had a Q and A followed by a presentation of certificates.
