Canine CPR and First Aid Certification for their dog trainers

According to the American Animal Hospital Association, 1 out of 4 pets would survive if just one pet first aid technique was applied prior to getting emergency veterinary care. 60% of all vet visits are emergency in nature and statistics show that preventable accidents are the leading cause of death among pre-senior dogs and cats. If your pet has an emergency, would you know what to do?

On the night of February 28th, our bulldog puppy Sophia passed after being restrained by a trainer during her leash walking lesson in your Levittown, NY store. Regardless of the mechanism of her death, the remaining fact is that a member of your puppy class died tragically. You are a company that makes millions of dollars from the love and affection that people have for their pets. We had hoped that we would receive the same compassion in return, and Sophia's life would be honored in that way.

I believe that Petco as a company can begin by making a change to ensure the safety of all animals. Certifying all of your dog training staff in pet CPR and first aid would be a great start. Perhaps Sophia would still be with us today if she had been treated with canine CPR techniques.

      I've watched these restraints they use on my pets when take to the vet. They say it's safe! I've decided at age 61 that I'm surrounded by people who think they are professionals but have a lot to learn about life. Our pets deserve us speaking up for them, and I am doing that for Sophia.

      It's were the pets go, but it's not where they should go to die.

      Most animals are members of people's families. Being able to provide CPR and first aid should be required!
