Dog Care

Over the past three years Fitzcharles Training has had the most wonderful time teaching Canine and Pet First Aid throughout Scotland, using our Training manikins. However there is a lot of confusing information out there about Dog Care in general. 

Fitzcharles Training has teamed up with a sister company to offer an online Dog Care course, using videos, and an online assessment, awarding you a qualification and certificate to be proud of, especially if you will be taking on the responsibility of a new pet. At the same time why not go on or one of our Canine or Pet First Aid classroom Courses?

To register for Dog Care On line Courses, or one of our Canine or Pet First Aid courses, you need to register on our booking system, we will then be able to log you on to one of the dog care courses presently £6.00, however we can give you a special introduction 10% discount.

There are approximately eight and a half million dogs kept as pets in the UK.

There are many different breeds and types of dog, varying in size, body shape an personality.

Owning and caring for a dog is great fun and immensely rewarding. But it’s also a big responsibility – on average, dogs live for around twelve years, but many live for much longer.

Dogs have very complex needs and each dog is unique. There’s no one ‘perfect’ way to care for all dogs because every dog and every situation is different. It’s up to you how you look after your dog, but you must take reasonable steps to ensure that you meet all your dog’s needs.

  1. Environment – every dog deserves a good home, where they can be healthy and happy.
  2. Diet – make sure your dog has a healthy diet to help keep them healthy and happy.
  3. Behaviour – you will need to train your dog
  4. Company – dogs are sociable animals who enjoy appropriate company.
  5. Health and welfare – help protect your dog from pain, suffering, injury and disease.
