‘Dog First Aid Training’ are a network of veterinary professionals and trainers with a shared vision - to give everyone with a dog in their life the skills and confidence to act in an emergency.

There are 9 million dogs in the UK and the majority will require First Aid at least once in their life. As owners and carers we never know when an accident may happen and they will need our help.

Since 2013 they have trained thousands of people to provide the emergency care their dogs need before getting to a vet and are so proud that in many cases this has saved the dog's life.

We are very excited to be welcoming them to the Sanctuary to help you understand what to do in an emergency and to give you the confidence to administer general first aid.

After all the unconditional love our dogs give to us shouldn’t we try to do the very best we can for them?
