Increase your own knowledge and gain required certification to make sure you are the best you can be

As a pet professional, you strive to provide the best service you can... but as well as being brilliant in your own sector, you also need so many more skills.
Ensure you have the knowledge to be fully prepared for whatever situation may arise, whilst meeting the industry required certification, and ensure you keep your own dogs and the dogs in your care safe.

Whether you're a sole-trader or part of a larger team, you can join us at an open course or host your own course and train your whole team!

Canine First Aid


Our Canine & Pet First Aid course ensures you are able to help provide basic first aid in an emergency situation to your own pets and those in your care.

This course gives you basic life-saving skills to initially respond to an illness or injury until you can get the pet safely to a veterinary surgery. It is ideal for pet owners but also provides the required certification for pet professionals and ensures your clients know their bests are in safe hands.

A very worthwhile and informative course! The material is delivered in easy to understand ways and there are plenty of interactive opportunities where we can put the new skills into practice and try to identify canine body language during the course. I would recommend this course to everyone, whether you're a dog owner or someone who works with dogs. It will make you look at our four-legged friends in a whole new light!

We really enjoyed participating in this course.

It has not only helped immensely with looking at our dog's body to understand how he is feeling but helps in our understanding the body language of other dogs that we may come across when out and about.

You will certainly look at your dog differently....but in a good way!

Adam - Dog Owner
This course was included in my dog grooming course I’m currently doing.
Potter Paws provided a face to face session at at the Salon.

The course was brilliant, very informative, friendly.

When I renew my certificate I will definitely be going back to Potter Paws.
Highly recommend

Chloe Ortega - Groomer
I completed the First Aid Course as I needed to update this for my dog walking and pet visiting business.

The course was very well presented and we received a certificate and first aid training booklet.

Highly recommended for pet professionals and pet owners
