“We booked an Dog First Aid Course for our staff in September 2022 and I can honestly say we were delighted with the course. Carla who presented the course was clear and interesting and we all enjoyed her style of teaching. The material was up to date and was very relevant to our staff who are employed in a dog day care setting. The course was interactive and the hands-on nature of the class ensured everyone was engaged and participated. We would not hesitate to book future dog first aid training through Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.”

“Carla provided canine first aid for 8 of my team. As we are a very busy dog day-care facility it is very important for us to keep on top of all first aid procedures and techniques. She was helpful when arranging a time for me to get enough people together and came out to the site to conduct the training out of our opening hours. We found the training to be professionally conducted and all questions outside of the training material were answered. I will be reaching out to Carla for any further basic and advanced training needs.”
