  Frequently asked questions

When does the course begin?

This class is self-paced. You work at your own pace. 

How long will the course be available?

Can I skip individual videos? What about entire lessons?

We recommend to get the most out of the course you compete each lesson and video in turn. 

 What should I do while I'm watching the videos and e-books?

Learn actively! You will retain more of what you learn if you take notes, draw diagrams, make notecards, and actively try to make sense of the material. There are thinking points in some sections and these are for your own learning and notes. 

Are there any exams?

There are 'test your knowledge' quizzes at the end of each module. At the end there is a longer quiz to test you knowledge on all areas discussed.

I really enjoyed this course, the instructor was very friendly and I found it very informative. I'm a dog walker and feel that after being on this course I would feel more than confident if anything happened to one of the dogs. Well presented and good value for money, I would definitely recommend this course for all dog lovers.

Kate, Dog Walker

A really good course! I learnt so much and feel I could help save the life of my own dogs, and those who I look after, in the event of an emergency, although I hope I don't find myself in that position! For anyone who looks after a dog as a pet or in a professional capacity I highly recommend First Aid for Dogs! I feel much more comfortable knowing that I could do something to help them in different situations rather than not knowing what to do and feeling useless! Brilliant course! Thank you.

Amanda, Dog Walker

I loved that it was efficient, straightforward and a cert is sent straight out. I'll be sending all my colleagues on and will encourage my clients to do on the course.
