DogGuru Pet First Aid offers a solid, experience-based Pet First Aid Certificate course for both dog and cat owners and Pet Care Professionals.


This Veterinarian-approved Certificate Course was developed in 2007 with the goal of bringing a more 'reality-based' approach to Pet First Aid.  Cheryl Orletsky, known as the DogGuru, is also the Founder/Director of Holiday Pet Care, a highly successful cagefree boarding and dog daycare facility in Thornhill.  Through her experience with thousands and thousands of pets, over the past two decades, she saw the need for a course that addressed the real side of what people face every day with their pets.  This Pet First Aid course, that she helped develop, is now a leader in the world of educating Professionals about how to care for their clients pets, and in giving pet parents 'peace-of-mind' that they know what to do.
