Pet Bereavement Training for Bailiwick Pet Professionals and Volunteers

Recently the GSPCA and Guernsey Bereavement Service teamed up for the third time recently to provide a training session in Pet Bereavement for those working or volunteering in the animal care industry in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

Anxious about Dogs?

Do you get anxious or scared if there is a dog nearby?

Do you avoid places or situations because of this?

Would you like to change this?

If you have answered “yes” to these questions, then an event will be announced soon.

The GSPCA in collaboration with the Health and Social Services Department will be running a half day Dog Phobia Workshop at the Animal Shelter.

The event is designed to help those with a phobia of dogs to carefully and gradually reduce their anxieties and is based on the most  up-to-date  research on phobia and anxiety treatment.

To register your details for the next Workshop please email:
