Learn New Tricks for Introducing Fur-Babies to Newborns

RSPCA NSW has launched a new online training course to help new and expecting parents to introduce their human and fur-babies. The Introducing Your Pet to a New Baby course aims to prepare parents for the exciting changes, and often stressful challenges, this time brings.

The course teaches both new and expecting parents the tricks to understand and take care of their youngest family members - from understanding your dog's body language, how to condition the dog to your baby, and advice for managing pets and toddlers all under the one roof. The RSPCA NSW Training Team offers a range of accredited and non-accredited courses available to complete online, in your own time.

There is also a Basic Animal First Aid (non-accredited) course designed for pet owners, animal care workers, dog walkers, foster carers, and anyone who loves animals. This short course covers the basics of animal first aid, including recognising emergencies, common poisons in the home, responding to snake bites, ticks and a basic introduction to wildlife.

“As a leading animal welfare organisation, we have a wealth of knowledge here to share. These courses can be helpful to anyone. From professionals and students with careers in the vet sciences and animal welfare to pet owners, parents introducing pets to children and community members seeking to grow their general knowledge and skills in interacting with and understanding animals,” said Adam Farrugia, RSPCA NSW Senior Manager – Training.

The online courses range from $15 for the Intro Your Pet to a New Baby to $50 for the Basic First Aid course. Additional time to chat live to a trainer can also be purchased if participants want more information. For more information, visit www.rspcansw.org.au/what-we-do/training
