Our staff is trained in PetTech Pet CPR & First Aid... Now you can be too!

We are proud to offer courses in Pet First Aid & CPR, Hiking and Walking, and Pet Saver! 

Every day our dogs and cats are capable of finding themselves in life-threatening situations. Sometimes there is nothing we can do to help them. But, if we are properly trained in CPR, Pet First Aid & Pet Care, we will know exactly what to do and how to help them, instead of standing by and watching in desperation. We won’t even hesitate, because we will do our job with confidence. Obviously, in our business, we are more exposed to all of these possibilities and that is why it 

became so important to me to become an instructor. I can assure you that between the pet experiences that I have had throughout my life and through my business, as well as the extensive training I have completed through Pet Tech, both as a student and as an Instructor, combined with my compassion, sense of humor and strong determination, you are going to leave my class well-equipped to handle any pet situation that comes your way. You might even choose to become an instructor yourself!


So, give me a call and sign up for one of the scheduled classes. You will be so glad you did and you will have lots of fun learning! And, yes, your pets will be glad you did this for them, too!
