Can we present a v.large bouquet to the staff of el Cortijo that worked tirelessly to make my 70th birthday a very memorable day/evening.

And of course a big thank you for all of my wonderful gifts, plus a special mention to Oliver, John and of course Barry for making sweet music. Oh and to Linda for a stunning cake x

What’s on- First Aid for Dogs and Dog Owners Course €40                              Why dog first Aid? Well unlike our other pets, we tend to take our dogs with us where ever we go and sometimes we take them to quite remote places like fields etc where we may be quite a distance from where we left the car. If anything happens to our dog then its going to be us that will have to do something and then manage getting them back to the car to take them to the vets.
Unfortunately we cant call 112 for our injured or ill dog and expect a pet ambulance to arrive with a couple of vets inside to treat our sick family member. Our course is designed to bridge the gap between your dog collapsing and getting to the vet.
The course isn’t designed to remove the need to go to the vets but instead to recognise when things are serious and need the vet, and equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to make that difference which might ultimately save your beloved dogs life. Just like in human lifeaccidents can happen anywhere – when you are out walking your dog, on the roadside or even at home. Coming on our course will give you the skills and knowledge to provide immediate action before calling the vet. More importantly we will give you the confidence to be able to use those skills.
This course is ideal for dog owners and those that work with dogs such as dog walkers, dog sitters, dog groomers.
On our 4 hour short course we will cover:-
Knowing your dog Weekly health checks Managing an incident
Checking vital signs CPR Drowning Choking Bleeding injuries Shock Restraints and carries  Dog first aid kits and what should be in them
Our course is compliant with the UK Veterinary Act 1966 & Vet Recover Guidelines 2012
You will get a certificate for this course.
Maximum number of 15 people so if you are interested contact Jason on info@stockwoodconsulting.co.uk
(The Editor has copies of all the qualifications of the Course Provider)
