Welcome Concerned Pet Parent…

  • Did you know it is estimated 92% of all pets will experience a major medical emergency in their lifetime?
  • Do you know what to do if your dog or cat has an emergency?
  • Would you like to learn the latest pet first aid techniques?

Pets naturally hide illness and injury.  Learning the skills to quickly recognize and respond to dogs and cats having a medical emergency can make the difference in not only the pain and suffering the animal experiences, but also may impact the cost of necessary veterinary care in such emergencies.


Through 6 hours of hands on training students gain the skills to recognize and respond to any dog or cat having a medical emergency.  Public classes are held regularly, click here to see the schedule and register.

Registered Emergency Animal Lifesaver.org and REAL Pet First Aid.com provide public and private pet first aid & CPR training classes for individual professional pet handlers, pet industry businesses, animal welfare groups, and concerned pet parents of all ages.  Through 6 hours of hands on practice, interactive training, live animal demonstration, and the latest science based curriculum, students gain the skills to recognize and respond to any dog or cat having a medical emergency.

Class participants may elect to test their knowledge and skills through our 40 question logic based certification exam. A score of 80% or higher allows for listing in our directory of certified providers, use of the R.E.A.L. logo and title, and the necessary support and training to keep your skills up to date.  Check for upcoming classes here or request an on-site private class for your business or group through our contact page.  Don’t delay, statistics say it’s not if, but when!  Get ready today!
