After working in the pet industry for many years, and with decades of animal care experience in the business, the aim of the £30 course is to get as many people as possible to learn the basics of canine first aid, so that they react calmly and appropriately in a crisis.

Many pet parents choose to do hands-on first aid qualifications or courses, but others maybe don't have the time, or money to take that step, so Bone Idol tutor Jon Clark says that this course is the introduction to the subject which will give dog owners key life saving skills.

He said: "The more people that have the basics of canine first aid the better, and this course, which can be done at your own pace, takes around two hours in total to complete and contains great information, which will help you react quickly and decisively in an emergency.

"From the basics of CPR, to understanding when to call the vet, this course is a great place to start for people who are strapped for time. It's a positive step in the right direction and will help keep your dog and other dogs you meet safer."

Qualified tutors at the Bone Idol academy have taught canine first aid qualifications, so this short course distils some of that key information in a bitesize and easy to digest way.

Jon added: "We have been part of the pet industry for many years, and as a business we have taught hundreds of people pet first aid as a qualification. But this course is accessible, online and useful for the wider public."

Topics on the video course which is led by Jon include CPR, poisoning, wound care and choking, and some modules include demonstrations of key techniques.

" There is key information and advice that you may not know about your dog, and who knows, taking this course might inspire you to go for the qualification to expand your knowledge." Added Jon
