On Sunday morning at the GSPCA we met 9 keen dog lovers who were looking to find out more on dog first aid.

We have been holding a series of training courses at the GSPCA and this weekend we trained a further 9 attendees what to do for their canine friends if faced with a first aid situation.

GSPCA Dog First Aid Course July 2015 in Guernsey

After a theory session of nearly 2 hours with Manager Steve Byrne over a coffee we took a short tour of the kennels and had some practical hands on with Chino one of the dogs that was recently homed from the GSPCA.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The first aid courses we have run at the GSPCA have been fantastic both in sharing knowledge for what to do if an owner or animal lover is placed in an animal first aid situation, as well as enjoyable time sharing experiences of first aid with pets."

"The sessions are always very light hearted although there are some very serious subjects covered including 'the kiss of life' which we like to call 'snog a dog' for a little fun although it is a technique that could well save a dogs life."

"We have other courses coming up including the WEA and GSPCA Animal Care Course starting again this September which we are very excited about and also further first aid courses in November."

"Chino our model dog for the afternoon was very well behaved and we'd like to thank all those that supported the event."
