Walks ‘n Wags Pet First Aid

Stefania became a Certified Pet First Aid Instructor through Walks ‘N’ Wags Pet First Aid Instructor Course in May of 2015.  After countless hours of course preparation, and many of her friends, family, and pets (and friends’ and families pets) allowing her to rehearse and practice on them, she runs this fun and interactive 10 hr Walks ‘N Wags Pet First Aid course a minimum of once per month! Private classes for groups of friends or as fundraisers for reputable animal charities can be scheduled as well… email us to find out if yours qualifies! Walks ‘N’ Wags is a national leader in pet first aid.
