ARMADALE, WEST LOTHIAN – CANINE 1ST AID WORKSHOP

Voted the UK’s No.1 K9 1st Aid Training provider every year since 2016

We are delighted to be back in Scotland at the kind request of the Armadale Partnership Centre Management Committee.  The Committee have very generously agreed to subsidise all participants on this session by 50% and will cover half the cost for you.  An offer like this DOES NOT come along every day so if I were you, I’d snatch their hands off.

Cost: £50 (£25 to be covered by the Partnership Committee) so you’ll just pay £25


This session, just like all our others, is sure to be fun, lively and incredibly effective at getting the important first aid information across that could well save the life of your furry companion.

.

We deal with shock, bleeding, choking, bites, road traffic accidents as well as the big topics of CPR and Artificial Respiration and much more

.

Students DO NOT bring their dogs, but I will have one or two of my Ridgebacks with me for demonstration purposes.
.

.
Each student will gain a certificate of attendance and full course notes to take away, so note taking throughout the session is unnecessary although we are more than happy for students to take their own notes, photographs of the dogs or anything that is put on the whiteboard during the day if they feel it will help them remember techniques or processes.
.
For students attending as part of their vocational studies, the course generates 3 CPD points.
.
During the bandaging section, I will demonstrate on one of my dogs.  It is vital that you practice on a human volunteer – a dog cannot give you any feedback about your skills so by doing it on a person, we can get their honest opinion once the bandage is complete. Human skin also reacts by changing colour and temperature if it is too tight and swells up, another indicator that is more difficult to see on a furry patient.
.
To practice on a toy would not give you any of this feedback and I would not be happy about anybody practising on a live animal until they are proficient.  I am, however, more than happy for our students to torture a human!  Wound dressings and vet wrap will be available to purchase at the end of the session should you require these for practice purposes or to beef up your first aid kit.
.

At the end of the session, all of the first aid products I use and discuss will be on sale too such as our Rhodes 2 Recovery book, first aid kits, moleskin, tick pickers etc should you need to add to your equipment list.

At this subsidised price, tickets will obviously go very quickly and there are strict limits on numbers, so if you would like to secure your place, please email Susan ASAP to avoid disappointment.
