Product Description

Helping people to help their pets is what we do at

Sunny-dog Ink!

As The Pet Safety Crusader, and having personally taught more than 20,000 humans animal life-saving skills, I know there are still sooooo many who could benefit from this knowledge, so I am training others so that together we can reach even more people and the animals they love.  I am one of just a few Pet First Aid instructors  (if not the only one) to actually have earned state teaching credentials in Animal Care so can therefore help you not only learn content, but HOW to teach so that your students comprehend.


Becoming an Instructor is YOUR business, not a franchise.  You pay for the program, and I teach you what I know, license you to use my slides and program and support your efforts however I can.

We don’t even have to be in the same city!  Training takes place via ZOOM where it’s just as intimate as sitting down across a coffee table together.  You watch me demonstrate, I watch you practice, we view slides and videos together as we learn and converse on a schedule that fits your lifestyle!


It’s GRReat to train with others so that you have an assistant or co-instructor.  Together you can start teaching more quickly as you divide up the class segments to become experts on, and not have to learn everything at once!

Costs are tailored so that you earn back what you spend by teaching just a few classes.   Training with a friend or co-worker can make it even more cost effective!

    Denise really knows her animals and has such a passion for them. I’ve looked at other Instructor Courses but felt if I was going to teach, I wanted to learn from the best. So glad I did 🙂 –Martha Smith, Greensboro Loves Animals!

    Our organization, when searching for pet first aid instructor training, evaluated 5+ companies. We chose Sunny-dog Ink and Denise Fleck based on many factors, but the most important one was her communication with us. As you can imagine we had a lot of questions for each company and received the most comprehensive and timely feedback from Denise.

    From there, the training far surpassed any pre-conceived ideas we may have had. He goal of “Helping YOU to Help YOUR Pet” blended seamlessly with our mission to reduce animal homelessness in our community. If community members are introduced to knowledge that not only helps their pets in times of emergency till they can get to a veterinarian, but are introduced to information about how to care for your animal, we may well have less homeless animals. Topics are covered in detail but also made relevant for the area of the country you expect to be teaching in. Subjects, such as CPCR or ticks, are presented with the most up to date information available. And instructors are invited to participate in quarterly meeting updates as well. Feedback on your teaching is presented in a positive manner. I could go on, suffice it to say, the experience is certainly worth the investment. Just do it!

    I would like to thank Denise for the wonderful training experience I had. As a vet tech, I am required to take seminars and classes regularly, and I found Denise’s to be the best I have had in a long time. The Pet Safety Crusader/Sunny-dog Ink Instructor training class exceeded my expectations. Denise’s knowledge of first aid and CPR for animal’s is spot on. The information is current and relevant; the presentation includes lots of good information and hands-on training, Other tools that were helpful to me are the pocket guides and “The Pet Safety Bible.” The best part of the class was my one-on-one time training with Denise! I learned a lot about providing first aid to animals, and how to train others to do it as well. Denise was very patient and flexible. Her critiques of my presentations were just what I needed to stay on track and keep my mind engaged. I highly recommend this class, and look forward to teaching others how to perform first aid on animals. I hope to do Denise proud! –Suzanne Sasak

    I am very proud and excited to be taking my Pet First Aid Instructors course (long distance from Dubai) with my First Aid guru, Denise Fleck from Sunny-Dog Ink! I met Denise at the Pet Sitters International Conference in New Orleans and was so intrigued by what she was doing and impressed by how she teaches that I decided to do the instructors course myself. So very honoured to be working with Denise to help others help their pets! –Bernadine Muller, Passion 4 Paws

    Denise Fleck’s Per First Aid and CPR Instructor training classes were detailed, comprehensive and personable. She even went above and beyond to help our homeless community population. We can now confidently teach our community how to help their pets in case of an emergency. She is a blessing, truly an amazing person to help us help our dogs and cats! –Rebecca Seefeld, President, We Care for Animals, Bullhead, AZ

    We cannot thank Denise Fleck (aka The Pet Safety Crusader) of Sunny-dog Ink enough for her Pet First Aid Instructor’s Training Course! Not only did she help us learn life-saving techniques for our own dogs, but she provided us the opportunity to add a service to our Community that is much needed. These classes are exciting and bring great skills to pet owners all over Oklahoma. We are so proud to provide this valued service. I was able to make a return on my investment teaching just 3 small classes. We are so thankful for the opportunity to work hand and hand with such a wonderful person who provides personal care and continuous education. Thank you, thank you 😊 I appreciate you! –Jonathan Cox, Buckaroos Retrievers & Retreats
