To prepare for pet emergencies

The Pet professional Guild (PPG), a member organization that is founded on the principles of force-free training and pet care, proudly announced the launch of the first complete pet first aid course.  Delivered via the Internet, the course is designed to teach first aid skills that are necessary for the implementation of aid to competently a sick or injured pet.  Knowing what to do during the initial minutes after an accident or trauma can be critical in the life of a pet.

According to Chairman PPG, NIKI Tudge, "everyone can benefit from learning some basic first aid.  Our new program is very comprehensive and quite extensive for pet industry professionals who need first aid skills in business and career but is equally suitable for pet owners who want to be prepared for emergencies. "the American Red Cross and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recommends that all pet owners learn pet first aid skills to help keep their animals safe and healthy.  Pet owners and professionals trained in pet first aid measures and proper life-saving techniques are better prepared to handle the routine and threatening emergencies when they occur.

To qualify for the PPG pet first aid certification, applicants must attend online program 3-hour, pass a rigorous written exam and submit four videos to PPG to demonstrate understanding of matter and the responsibility of first-aid skills practice.  Tudge says, ' our PPG has developed first aid by a technician veterinary certification in accordance with the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) guidelines and teaches the basic skills and procedures that can potentially save a pet's life by giving you the knowledge to provide basic treatment to a sick or injured animal VET until professional help is available. "  The AVMA reminds pet owners and professionals that first aid is not a substitute for veterinary care, but this may save the life of a pet so veterinary treatment is available.

PPG plans to offer an increasing number of programs based on the "force-free" philosophy of your pet training and pet care.  Tudge says, "as pet ownership continues to grow and to develop activities that owners can enjoy with their pets, knowing basic first aid skills are more crucial for owners and industry professionals.  We believe that the pet owning public needs trusted educational resources based on guiding principles of PPG.  

We define our philosophy clearly, methods and techniques that our members use so the public can be assured that every Guild Member will provide services in accordance with the guidelines and stated philosophy.  The public can ensure that only the power-free methods adopted education and care for their pets.
