“Pet safety and making sure our team members are trained for any health scenario that could potentially arise is paramount for our business,” Woofie’s co-founder Leslie Barron stated. “We are a thriving business because of the wonderful community we serve. We love our pets and we adore each and every pet we get to pamper with our services. So, what better way to thank our community than to make sure their owners learn the best ways to keep them safe as well.”
The classes are tailored to the needs and situations of a pet parent and caregiver, with a focus on preventative measures, dangers in the pet’s environment, and “look-fors.” Attendees will learn about preventative measures to avoid danger all together, as well as what to do if an emergency does arise. Topics include first aid for dogs and cats, including CPR, choking management, bleeding protocol, insect bites, poisoning, and more.
