Why is the course is expensive?
We have compared our prices to other pet/dog first aid course and ours is still value for money. When you look at how long other courses go for, and the cost, ours is still cheaper per hour! Not only that, our knowledge is constantly evolving, constantly being updated, reviewed and USED in the real world! Numerous companies take human first aid courses and change the name human to dog or buy into franchises….. not us!
We may be the smallest provider out of them all, but we don’t sacrifice the quality of our training and services. As the saying goes, "You get what you paid for"
