What’s The Program?
The Pet Tech Instructor Training is a comprehensive, three-day, interactive program. Instructors will learn the necessary skills and teaching methods to properly train pet owners in first aid and care. This course will include competent training in the identification and evaluation of the signs and symptoms a pet may develop and the appropriate actions to be taken for proper emergency medical treatment.
Who Are Our Instructors?
The Instructor Training is ideal for: obedience trainers, kennel operators, pet retailers, pet sitters, veterinarian staff, animal shelter employees, pet rescue personnel, pet groomers, EMTs, firefighters, and any pet lover.
“Pet Tech is a vital part of my dog training business. It has been a vehicle which has increased my access to pet shelters and Humane Societies in my area. The first aid program has become part of the offered training to the staff of more than one of these shelters as a fund raiser, even being included in the curricula for a dog trainers academy. I think all dog trainers should have first aid training to provide for their students.”
– Lisa Clifton-Bumpass, Pawsitive Steps Dog Training
What’s The Market?
Pet owners consider their pets to be their best friends, members of their family, and lifelong companions. There are over 120 million pet owners in the United States. Annually, they spend over 30 billion dollars on their pets. There is a tremendous need for training in pet first aid and care because unfortunately, thousands of pets are injured every year from preventable accidents! Pet owners would do just about anything to help their pet, if they knew how.
Pet Tech Instructors help fulfill this need by offering the following classes:
- First Aid & Care for Your Pets™
