Security Dog First Aid Level 2 (VTQ)

Security Dog First Aid Level 2 (VTQ) is approved by NASDU (National Association of Security Dog Users), for the requirement of pet first aid in their standards.

Pet first aid is important to know for your security dog as it will not only comply with associations and local authorities but it is also important for animal welfare and to help should you come across a dog in need. The nature of working dogs means that there is a risk that they might be harmed in the course of their work or during transport. It

This course has been designed to meet the NASDU learning outcomes and we have added a few extra modules to ensure full understanding. This qualification is also endorsed by TQUK to give an extra level of approval. If you require an endorsed certificate there is an additional small charge.

Run via ProTrainings UK, the content of this course has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and as such, it comes with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a ProTrainings Certificate and for online courses an Evidence-Based Learning statement.
