MALTON canine first aid

Following a packed session in Castle Howard, we’ve been asked to return to North Yorkshire and so have arranged another canine first aid workshop, this time taking place in the village of Amotherby, Malton.  Just like the last, it’s 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.

The K9 1st Aid courses delivered by Rhodes 2 Safety have been ranked as the UK’s Number 1 by the 2017 Business Excellence Awards so you know the information and service you get will be second-to-none.


T’s & C’s
Students will receive a wound dressing and vet-wrap to practice with during the session & take home, and also printed notes at the end of the course together with their certificate.  Bookings are payable in full, in advance, and are non-refundable if less than 2 full weeks’ notice is given for cancellations.

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.

There are 2 ticket types – full tickets are for those wishing a seat with nobody in front of them, full participation in the course (ie bandaging etc) and certificate, wound dressing, vetwrap and notes to take away.  Spectator-only tickets will be for people simply watching and not participating in the demonstrations or taking home bandages etc.  These seats will be behind the participating students and do not generate a certificate.

Each FULL TICKET student will gain a certificate of attendance and printed 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.
Seating plan will be in a horseshoe so that EVERYBODY with a full ticket will be on the front row – nobody should 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 practicing on a live animal until they are proficient in it 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.
