I completed my first aid training course in September, 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.
Sam Potter who ran the course was brilliant, very informative, friendly and made everyone who was taking part get involved.
At the end of the course you complete a test and receive a nice certificate.
You can also purchase an animal first aid kit and student booklet which I thought was a nice touch 👍🏼
When I renew my certificate I will definitely be going back to Potter Paws.
