See what clients say about Walks N Wags Pet First Aid!
“I recently took Walks N Wags First Aid for Pets and was fortunate to take it at Good Hound Training in Ladner. Mallory is a great instructor with an obvious passion for the career path she and her husband have chosen. Her energy and instruction style are laid back, and peppered with funny as well as heartwarming and, even, sad stories regarding experiences she’s had during which first aid was required for her or another’s dogs. The 10-hour course is intensive… and fun… with live dogs to help you put into practice what you learn. And, surprisingly, the day goes by in the blink of an eye!
Once you’re certified with First Aid for Pets, you can upgrade with Off the Grid. This 3-hour course is recommended if you’ll ever find yourself 2 or more hours away from a vet hospital, i.e. camping or hiking. I took Off the Grid this past weekend, and what fun we had figuring out how to “McGuyver” bandages and stretchers out of common everyday items (sans first aid kits). This time, I took along my almost 2-year old silver lab, Atticus. He was a great sport and Mallory treated him like a pro – understanding that he’s still a puppy and keeping him relaxed all the while letting him “be a puppy” and have a good time while “working”. Her obvious love and knowledge of dogs and their psychology is remarkable and definitely an attribute to her success.
I would not only recommend the Walks N Wags First Aid for Pets to anyone who has a pet, but I would recommend, specifically, taking the course through Good Hound Training. When the time comes to recertify, I hope that Mallory is still instructing the course.
Great job and good luck in all that the future holds for you!”
