Why learn about service dog first aid?

ProTrainings have been developing first aid courses for dogs for over 12 years and in that time we have heard countless stories of how pet owners and handlers have saved an animals life or helped in when an accident occurs. 

With this course, we have teamed up with the London Retired Police Dogs Trust to produce a course especially aimed at service dogs of all breeds to help them should an accident occur.  The course is presented by Nicki Bell, a registered vet and advisor to the LRPD.

The course covers many different injuries and gives you the confidence to help a dog in need.

In this video, Rob Bell tells you more about the London Retired Police Dogs Trust and the exceptional work they carry out.

You will learn about how the charity works to support retired service dogs and their owners when they need it to give them the best care after the service they give to us all. 

The LRPD trust provides support for medical care and treatment, meaning their owners are not left with an agonising decision to make about the animals future due to financial concerns.

London Retired Police Dogs Trust

London Retired Police Dogs Trust (LRPD) was set up in 2019 to support the retired police dogs of London with their welfare needs. Once retired, the responsibility of the dog falls to their handler who has an unbreakable bond with the animal. Some retired police dogs are rehomed to an adopted family who again, take on the responsibility of the dog.

Retiring police dogs do not receive a pension to support them through their ageing years, which means people who take on retired police dogs receive no financial support in a time in a dog’s life where, after a lengthy time on ‘the beat’, vets bills are inevitable and expensive. Due to the nature of the work that our courageous dogs perform it is extremely difficult to insure them which means care and treatment costs can soon mount up.

London’s retired police dog fund is not connected in any way to The Metropolitan Police Service, or any other Police force in the United Kingdom. As an independent organisation, London Retired Police Dogs Trust has its own constitution and Trustees who are accountable for its operation.

A retired police dog is deemed by us to be; any dog that has been licenced to Home Office Standards to be a police dog, working in London. Consideration will be given to applications for any dog who is, or has been, a police dog deemed as above and is medically retired at any age, or has been retired for other reasons over the age of five years.

Meet some of the dogs in this first aid course

When we made this course, we used different Police dogs in active service and retired.  In this film, we introduce the team and put a name to a face.

These are just some of the dogs helped by the charity and without your support, their valuable work will not be able to continue.
