Here at Katharine House, we recognise the part that dogs play in the family and the benefit that having the company of a canine can have for people, especially through difficult times. We frequently have four-legged friends visiting loved ones at the hospice, to visit patients staying with us, and as Pets as Therapy dogs as part of our Living Well Services and Health Walks.

We are hosting these courses as a chance to help you give back to your furry companions and ensure that you are prepared in the event of an accident. This enjoyable and very informative half day course will give you the confidence and knowledge you need to ensure you are ready if the need for first aid arises.

"The course was excellent very informative the lady leading the course was very professional and made it a pleasure to attend." Attendee from the February 2020 course.
