Student Testimonials:  “thank you!  It was an interesting experience…I learned a great deal.  The odds that I will face most of the situations is low, but it is so nice to be prepared.  I’ll review materials over time to make sure I keep them in my mind.  As a pet sitter, I have a strong commitment to my clients, and completing this course was a pledge I made when I started doing this “full-time” in March of this year.  Thank you for helping me to achieve that goal, with the opportunity to do so in a manner that fit my schedule (i.e. I didn’t have to turn down a single request for service because I was “in class.)” (Tina Sievers)

“I received an interesting call tonight.  My friends who live six hours away from me called and asked me about doing First Aid.   Their dog was hit by a car, walked home and collapsed.  So, over the phone I was able to tell her how to treat for shock and an injured tail while they waited for a Veterinarian to be available.” (Joyce Wampler in Morocco)

“The course was set up very well and I learned a great deal from it.  It was very informative and I would highly recommend it to anyone that owns a pet.” (Paula Mitzel)
