Our Incidents Involving Canines Initial module is suitable for emergency responders who are required to assess and interact with canines as part of their operational role.

The highly practical and incident focussed workshop will provide delegates with skills to recognise canine behaviours and utilise techniques and approach that maximise safety for personnel and promote welfare of the animal.
