You are required to attend the full 10 hours of class to receive your certificate.  This includes demonstrating your learned practical skills and receiving a passing mark on your written knowledge assessment.

Classes are held at Nanaimo Pet Services at 4512 Wellington Road  

Remember to wear comfortable clothing as you will be practicing on CPR dog mannequins and live dogs (or stuffed animals) on the floor.

Dogs are welcome if registered ONLY. There is a maximum of 4 dogs allowed to be registered. Your dog must be obedient, relatively calm, quiet and sociable with other dogs and people, as they will be handled by multiple people for demonstrations. Your dog must also be healthy and up-to-date on vaccines. Pawsitive Touch Canine Massage reserves the right to send any dog home if she/he is felt to be disruptive or unsuitable for the class. Pawsitive Touch Canine Massage and/or Walks ‘N’ Wags Pet First Aid and/or Nanaimo Pet Services do NOT assume liability should damage and/or injury be caused  by your dog. WNW Pet First Aid covers information on cats, but due to the environment, we regret that cats are unable to be used as demo animals in classes.

While snacks and beverages will be supplied, there will be a short lunch break. Please pack a lunch for yourself or bring money to purchase lunch at nearby restaurants.
