doberdeer - A company called PetTech offered a canine CPR and First Aid class in our area, and the American Red Cross offers them as well.

the best thing besides the CPR / Choking was the Emergency evacuation plan.. things like making a list and keeping it on the fridge with all the things you need to bring, meds, etc.. things that you may forget if told to leave now .. also if you have to go to a shelter try to bring a picture of you and your dog.. not just the dog...since red cross now has a tent / shelter area for pets but you have to bring your own crate..... also how to stock a first aid kit.. have things like Benadryl, Hydrogen Perox. Powdered Gatoraid packets ( for heat emergengies) , tweezers, nail clippers, rolled gauze.. he said try to think of things that may not be in a human first aid kit.. there was so much i can hardly remember it all ( good thing they gave us a book and DVD) .. for 45 dollars it was a great wealth of info thats for sure !
