Always the most impactful training is face to face. Many of the life saving skills are best practiced in-person. Plus you can learn with your own well behaved canine companion. This is a must for the K9 Emergencies Advanced Course.



On-line is great way to experience the basic course. Interactive and can be attended remotely at a location of your choice. This option is only available for the 2 hK9 Emergencies Basic Course.



If you're looking for a focused presentation 1 on 1 this can be done depending on location. This type of training also offers the most ease of scheduling as well.  

Q: Can I bring my dog(s) to the K9 Emergencies Care Course?

A: Yes, no...maybe?! Your experience will be enhanced greatly if your canine companion can attend the course. Practicing your assessment skills on your own pup is ideal. Especially when we go over pulse locations and do skills practice. However, your dog MUST be able to be around other dogs and people without the danger of them biting or being a major disruption. If your companion is not a social beast we suggest you request an on-line or one-on-one course. 

Q: Is this course for puppy's or just full grown dogs?

A: Training at any age for your dog is great. Although many of the assessment strategies and equipment used will be focused towards full grown dogs. You will just know that upon completion of the course that further focus and practice of your new skills will need to be re enforced as your canine grows into their paws.

Q: Should I sign-up for both the 2 hour basic and the full 8 hour K9 Emergency Course? 

A: Probably not. The 8 hour K9 Emergency Course covers everything in the basic course with skills practice interlaced with the didactic sections.
