    I have done a few of the courses over the years. They are in depth and really packed full of information. A great price as well. I have got another course booked for March.

    Rachel’s first aid course was amazing!
    I went for the ofqual one and loved every bit of it, not only did I learn first aid but picked up some vital business tips for when it comes to the health of client pets. Having the practical aspect was a necessity, being able to practice it really retains it in your memory.
    I hope I never have to use it, but I feel secure knowing I will be prepared for a situation if it arises.

    If you’re looking for an informative online course as a pet owner then you needn’t look any further. The same could be said for the professionals courses. Rachel’s first aid courses are informative, fabulous value for money and take away the stress of the “what if” moments that you would otherwise, as a pet owner, take your dog to the vet for-although first aid as emphasised by Rachel throughout her courses are not a substitute for veterinary care. Taught by a qualified Royal Veterinary Nurse, these courses equip you with the skills and knowledge required to address any injuries/real life scenarios, with real life dogs to practice your skills upon and a personable teaching style, leaving an impressionable teaching experience for the individual whilst inspiring confidence within your abilities. Fabulous value for money 💵 wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rachel’s courses to any of my classes or clients. Rachel inspires confidence in all of her course attendees and delivers information in an engaging manner that is always well received and inclusive to not only the neurotypical client but the neurodivergent client also.

    I’ve done 2 first aid courses with Rachel and honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else. I’ve done a few others before I found Rachel but none have been so indepth. And Charlie loved coming to be a helper. I recommend Rachel to anyone who works with animals and pet owners

    The Canine First Aid course which Rachel delivers is just great. I’ve done the course myself and I’ve also hosted Rachel to run the course for a large group of my clients too. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the course and felt it was helpful, practical, full of useful facts and great value for money. What’s not to like?!!

    I have attended Rachel’s courses twice now and as well as being very informative they are presented in a way that helps you remember. I have also found the online course to work well alongside the practical course. A must for dog owners and professionals

    I simply cannot comprehend a better trainer for canine first aid,within 18 months of doing her afternoon course I treated injury and prevented infection in two of my charges and saved a whippets life when it had congestive heart failure, Rachel is quite simply the best out there, do your little lords and ladies a favour and do her course, could be the difference in keeping them with you longer.

    I attended one of Rachel’s canine first aid courses & found it to be extremely informative. Rachel is an engaging trainer who has a depth of knowledge, giving examples from her own experience. I can’t recommend her more highly & will happily do other courses with her.

    I have done both Rachels online and face to face first aid course for dogs and can honestly say they are probably the best ones I have done and no power point along with a very patient dog that lets you practice bandaging
