“As I lifelong pet owner, I was flabbergasted by how much I didn’t know about providing for the care and safety of my fur babies! I learned a lot and feel more confident about preventing and/or responding to emergencies. Thanks Jennifer!” -Liz G
“I learned so much and it certainly did not feel like 6 hours. This program was so informative and engaging!” – April F.
Jennifer’s experience and passion for pet safety make her such a wonderful teacher! The content is engaging and the personalized nature of the class makes the material memorable. After taking the Pet First-Aid & CPCR Class, I feel prepared to assist as a first-responder for any dog or cat in my care. – Jason K.
I recently took the class for Pet First Aid and CPCR. It was great and I learned a lot from it. One of the classes explained how to properly bandage a bleeding ear on a pet. It happened that a day after completion of the class I found myself in a situation where a pup has one ear injured. I immediately grabbed the needed supplies and applied every step learned in class. I am happy to announce that pup ear healed properly. It made a whole lot difference that I could applied learned steps in order to be successful. Sometimes we think it will never happen to us until you find yourself in that moment. – Sylvia M.

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR: Jennifer Morrone took her first Pet First Aid Class in 2014 when she launched her pet sitting business. Jennifer wanted to be able provide her clients peace of mind that she could handle any situation that might happen while they were away. In 2020, when it came time to renew her certification again, Jennifer decided to take an online course through Pet Sitters International as a part of their certification program. After reviewing the course several times to prepare for the exam, Jennifer realized that the information was becoming natural recall and wanted to provide the same opportunity to her team and fellow pet lovers across the Virginia Peninsula. Jennifer Morrone has been trained to teach animal life-saving skills by Denise Fleck, the Pet Safety Crusader™, who has taught more than 20,000 humans Pet First Aid and CPCR. Jennifer is delighted to bring this program to the community.
