This course provides you with the knowledge on how to handle uncooperative dogs. This is an intensive course, limited to small numbers of delegates with classroom work & practical sessions.
The morning sessions cover the theory of handling dogs, legal aspects of dog handling, health & safety, and basic animal first aid. The afternoon is a practical animal restraint session at a kennel.
