B.A.R.K. Ranger Hiking and Outdoor Safety Training – FREE

Gateway Arch National Park and Midwest Pet CPR and First Aid’s Kat Trigg are teaming up for a FREE pet safety course!

Meet Kat and furry friend, Gomez in the green space under the Arch to learn about how to keep you and your dog safe while outdoors. Kat will guide you and your pet through basic safety, supplies you need while outdoors with your pet, and hands-on scenarios of what to do if an incident occurs.

About the instructor:

Kat Trigg started out in the pet industry in 1994 and has been a pet groomer since 2004, specializing in dogs with disabilities and special needs. She became a PetTech® certified Pet CPR/ First Aid Instructor in 2016 after having personal experiences where CPR and rescue breathing were required. Sharing those experiences with others made her realize how important this knowledge is and how many people don’t have it. Whether a pet care professional or a loving pet parent, everyone needs to be educated in what to do during an emergency involving their furry family members.
