Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid, April update

This month I have been working with Veterinarians in BC, Saskatchewan, and Ontario reviewing our manual and it's contents. It has been so interesting hearing perspectives of Pet First Aid and care from different Canadian regions. I also enjoy meeting people I might not have otherwise when undertaking audits like this one.

We are also busy prepping for our next Pet First Aid course here in Vancouver on May 30 at It's Still a Dog's Life. Also planning for the Petnership Trade Show that we are offering a presentation for in June. The variety in my job keeps me constantly satisfied as I am always doing something different.

Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid, first blog

Today marks my first day as a blogger...I'm finally in the 21st century.

2010 has been an exciting year for Walks 'N' Wags. On March 20th, we celebrated our 10 year anniversary of business. It's hard to believe that 10 years ago I sat, waiting by the phone for it to ring. Now, it almost never rings since everyone uses email!

This past year in particular has been exciting as I have had more time to spend on the Pet First Aid program. I have had the awesome opportunity to travel to Alberta to teach the Alberta Association of Enforcement Officers, and had the great opportunity to present 2 Pet First Aid seminars at the Canwest Vancouver Pet Expo. I also travelled to Calgary to train a number of new Instructors there.

I love my job. I meet great people, who I like to think of as a different breed of pet owner. These people are the ones who go above and beyond to make sure that they do the best by their pets. I am honoured every time someone signs up for one of our courses.

Here's to another 10 years!
