Rachel, who holds the prestigious Recover Guidelines Rescuer Certificate, said: “Whether you are a pet professional, have a dog friendly office or work in a space which welcomes dogs, this course is an amazing way to get up to speed on the basics of life saving.

“We are trialling the new course in Manchester first and hope businesses will be happy to be trailblazers in making their premises not only dog friendly, but dog safe too.

“The country is getting more dog friendly than ever and that is a wonderful thing, but it is so important that as many people as possible know what to do should the worst happen.

“My course will help you act calmly and quickly to save a life and may inspire you to take your studies further too to include more life-saving skills.”

As well as working in veterinary practice, Rachel also travels the world teaching canine first aid.

And she co-runs the Vet on Set business which operates out of Manchester’s Media City, providing animal support to film and TV productions using four-legged stars.
