First Aid, CPR, & Canine Conditioning Workshop

Dates Coming Soon!

Paws and Play Dog Resort and Training Center is proud to offer an extensive training workshop on Canine Conditioning & First Aid and CPR to any student interested in earning a certification of competition on the topic. Our goal is to teach students how to prevent and minimize risk of injury along with the proper ways to respond during a canine emergency. Whether you participate in canine sports or simply want to maximize the quality of your dog's life, Canine Conditioning will give you the tools and confidence to do so! We love our dogs as members of our family, so it is only natural to want to feel prepared should they be injured or face other life-threatening complications. First Aid and CPR skills will allow you to stabilize and prevent further harm until a veterinarian or other emergency professional can be reached. The First Aid and CPR portion of this workshop will include a 2-year certification through a nationally recognized program. Our trainers will also help you put together your own personalized emergency kit!
