Your Stories

Tell us YOUR story

After our canine first aid courses, we often have students contacting us to tell us when they’ve had to use their skills.  We LOVE hearing how well you’ve all done so we decided to put a page up where you could add your stories to our website to show everybody just what you’ve learned and hopefully to give others the confidence to tackle their own emergencies using the skills we’ve taught them.

    Yesterday, one of our past students got in touch to share her recent experience with me and she has kindly said I can share it with you all too.
