It’s so nice to be back after a long lockdown physical absence!
On our courses, EVERYBODY is welcome from Students through to Professional Groomers, Pet Sitters, Dog Trainers, Security Guards and Hobbyists. We deal with shock, bleeding, choking, bites, road traffic accidents as well as the big topics of CPR and Artificial Respiration
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.
During the bandaging section, I will demonstrate on one of my dogs (I have three to choose from so there will definitely be at least one Rhodesian Ridgeback roaming amongst you). It is generally safer to practice your skills initially on a human volunteer rather than on your furry best friend. 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 clearly by changing colour and temperature if it is too tight and swells up which is great for you to witness as a learning tool. Once you are consistently getting positive feedback from your human “Rover”, that’s the time to start practising on your dog.
We have a fully stocked shop from which Ill bring a good selection, and all of the featured products are also available on the website (along with many more things that we don’t mention): our Rhodes 2 Recovery books, bandages, first aid kits, vet wrap, tick pickers etc. Don’t forget, if you do order from our website rather than in person, there will be the inevitable post and packing costs to add, so bring your purse and fill your boots while you’re here!
