Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid Expansion

Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid is Canada's longest standing Pet First Aid program. We have offered our program for almost 2 decades and strongly feel that it stands above the rest.

In the past year, we have expanded, offering our program to persons in across Canada, part of the U.S.A., Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and other International destinations. Our program is also offered as part of the curriculum in many pet-related educational institutions.

We would like to train Instructors to bring our program to a number of other Canadian and International desinations. If you are passionate about animal health and live in the following areas (or any other area for that matter), please contact us for information:

The Maritimes, Canada
All parts of Northern Canada
Manitoba, Canada
Quebec, Canada (program only available in English)
Any part of the U.S.A. or any other International Destination

In order to become an Instructor, one first needs to complete the Pet First Aid program; this can be done in person in many Vancouver, BC locations or completed via Distance Learning. A mark of 84% is required to apply for the Instructor course. Persons who may wish to apply include: dog walkers, cat sitters, pet shop owners, shelter staff, groomers, nurses, fire fighters, human first aid instructors, and anyone else from the pet or health industry.

The Instructor course is being held in Vancouver, BC May 7/8, 2011 and also September 24/25, 2011 in Calgary, AB Canada. Enrollment is currently under way for the Instructor Courses and is limited to 6 persons per class.
