As we have now all been instructed to minimise travel and distance ourselves as much as possible, until everything sorts itself out, we have had no option but to alter the way in which we will be delivering our courses.  Yes, we will no longer be able to get together IN PERSON at the venues we had planned BUT we are still going ahead with our teaching sessions, at the same time, on the same day that you have booked.  Certificates and course notes will be posted to you after the event to keep your CPD requirements up to date.  To get around the problem of social isolation, we are switching our sessions to teaching remotely, via a live webinar link, directly to you in your own home.  Everything will be pretty much the same as it would if I were with you in person – but you’ll be able to do the course in your PJs with no bra or makeup this time if the fancy takes you!!!! (fellas, that includes you too).

So what to you need to do to access the training via webinar?  Well, you will receive an email (to the email address you quoted when you booked your place).  That email will have the joining link you need to access the training and it’s SIMPLE I promise.  If you are going to watch the course on a PC or a laptop, then clicking the link will take you straight into the meeting.

If you are going to watch via a tablet or other mobile device, then you will need to make sure you have already downloaded the 8×8 Video Meetings app to your phone or tablet.  Then, at the time of the meeting, just click the joining link in your email to connect straight through.

The session will be open to join 15 MINUTES before it is due to start to enable everybody to get to grips with the tech so we can still start on time.  If you have any questions, please do give me a text on 07946 208817.

Webinar joining emails will be sent out over the next few days or, if you are only just booking now, you will receive an email a day or so after you book.

We are thrilled that our 2020 Scottish Tour takes in a visit to EDINBURGH.  This afternoon session 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.

As seen on Britain’s Top 100 Dogs.

Rhodes 2 Safety have been ranked as the UK’s Number 1 for canine first aid training for the last 4 years straight in the Business Excellence Awards as well as the Winner of the Outstanding Training Provider of the Year award, 2017 and a finalist in the 2019 Animal Star Awards, so you know the information and service you get from us will be second-to-none.

business excellence award press release

Everybody is welcome from Students through to Professional Groomers, Pet Sitters, Dog Trainers, Security Guards, Hobbyists and members of the General Public.  We deal with shock, bleeding, choking, bites, road traffic accidents as well as the big topics of CPR and Artificial Respiration

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. For students attending as part of their vocational studies, the course generates 3 CPD points.
Students are seated in a horseshoe so that EVERYBODY is on the front row and nobody will be struggling to see.
During the bandaging section, I will demonstrate on one of my dogs and then students will be put into pairs to allow one to be the first aider and the other to be the doggy patient. Once the bandage is done, students will then swap so that each not only has a go at doing the dressing but also feels how it is to be the patient and understands how the dressing feels when applied. 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.
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 with the skill.  I am, however, more than happy for them to torture a human!
At the end of the session, there will be first aid products on sale too, such as our Rhodes 2 Recovery book, bandages, first aid kits, vet wrap, tick pickers etc.  Tickets do go very quickly so if you would like to secure your place, please click the link below.
(Spaces are paid for in full, in advance, and sadly are non-refundable if cancelled with less than two weeks notice.)
