Dog Care Level 2 (VTQ) - Pet Care Training

This dog care (pet care) course is aimed to go alongside our pet first aid course to look at caring for your dog rather than dealing with an emergency.

Dogs are great fun and will be a friend to you and your family, however, they will rely on you for everything from their exercise, shelter, companionship, food, water, grooming, to their training, veterinary care, and protection. 

In this veterinary care course, you will learn how to prevent your dog from getting hurt or becoming ill; we discuss different things you need to think about when you get a dog or puppy.

Cat Care Level 2 (VTQ) - Pet Care Training

On this cat care (pet care) course, we discuss different things you need to think about when you get a cat or kitten. This course is aimed to go alongside our pet first aid course to look at caring for your cat rather than dealing with an emergency. 

We discuss choosing a cat or kitten and look at the pedigree cat side so that when you choose, you know what questions to ask. 

We also cover the care you give once you have a cat or kitten. Prevention of accidents is very important, and the correct care for your cat can prevent it from getting hurt or becoming ill.
