Schedule For Pet First Aid, Behavior and Wellness Classes

 dog and cat first aid classes

Master Certified Pet First Aid/CPR Instructor Arden Moore is based in the Dallas metro area, but conducts classes throughout North America for special group situations. She intentionally keeps her classes at no more than 15 students to ensure everyone receives plenty of time to practice hands-on skills. To ensure the safety of all in the class, no pets are permitted.

Recognized as one of the nation’s top pet first aid instructors, Arden customizes her classes for specific breeds, pet professionals (vet techs, pet sitters, trainers, etc.) and works with non-profit pet groups and rescue groups so that staff and volunteers receive hands-on training in pet first aid and safety.

Class fees include all course materials and certificates. Graduates in these courses earn two-year certification in pet first aid. Got a question? Contact Arden at arden@fourleggedlife.com.
