You want to learn canine first aid by the best with the best hands on training available. You want a DOGSAFE Authorized Instructor. Where every student uses a CASPER manikin to practice with and a first aid kit to learn bandaging skills.
Who should have DOGSAFE training?
Do you run, hike, hunt, swim, play sports, or simply co-exist with your dog? Perhaps you have a service dog (police, guard, guide, etc.) or maybe you provide a service to dogs (walking, grooming or daycare). Are you prepared should your dog become ill or injured? You and your dog can benefit from a DOGSAFE course. Check it out.
Welcome to K9ABCs. My objective is to help people to keep their canine companions safe and happy, without putting them in a bubble. A main part of this is through instructing canine first aid as an authorized instructor of DOGSAFE. (Learning first aid will not replace the need for veterinary care in your dog's life but it will help you better care for you dog daily and in emergencies.) I'll be joined by DohG, my new official demo dog for K9ABCs. She's full of beans and eager to meet you all. Laurie
"I attended the March 06, 2021 K9ABCs first aid course run by Laurie. Excellent presentation of the material - Laurie is an amazing teacher combining the book material with personal experience both as a paramedic and as a dog lover. What stood out for me was the dog 'Annie': a rubber dog to practice all the handling skills needed for an emergency - CPR, assisted breathing, pulse check. Class was run in a highly professional manner with love an care for animals exuding at all times. All of it with COVID restrictions in place and well observed. Thank you Laurie, I'll be back for refreshers when time comes." Violeta Toma, 2021
