Do you plan on working with other people’s pets for a living as a dog walker, groomer, or staff member at a boarding facility? Do you have pets at home and want to be prepared in case of an emergency? We can help. This course will cover pet first aid and CPR techniques. The emphasis will be on cats and dogs, and life-sized mannequins will be used to mimic working with real animals. Please do not bring your pet to class. The course length is 3 hours, and the fee is $50.
Pre-registration is required. Class sizes are limited. For more information call (312) 644-8338 ext. 344 or e-mail email@example.com. The $50 course fee must be made prior to the class date.
