CANINE ON-LINE FIRST AID
Due to restrictions placed upon us in accordance with the Corona virus, we were unable to get to our students in person so started teaching remotely, via live Webinar linkup. So popular were these sessions that we have decided to continue offering one per month, even though we are now BACK ON THE ROAD. Certificates and course notes will be posted to you after the event to keep your CPD requirements up to date. All the sessions we have delivered in this manner since April 2020 have been very warmly received, with our students agreeing that no information is lost in this delivery method … though obviously it’s a shame you don’t get to meet Rain, Dice and Coda in person for cuddles!
So what to you need to do to access the training via webinar? Well, when you book on through the button below, you will receive an email. 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 provided you have Google Chrome on your computer, simply 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 30 MINUTES before it is due to start to enable everybody the time to get to grips with the tech so we can still start promptly. If you have any questions, please do give me a call on 07946 208817 and we will talk you through any glitches.
On our courses, 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
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.
I will record the entire session so, in the unlikely event that your signal drops out during the live transmission, I will be able to send you over a video of any parts you missed.
During the bandaging section, I will demonstrate on one of my dogs and if you have your dog handy, then you could try this as we go along too. However, 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 on the website where any products featured (and many more that we don’t mention) will be available for you to buy should you wish: our Rhodes 2 Recovery books, bandages, first aid kits, vet wrap, tick pickers etc. If you do order from our website, your merchandise will be sent to you in a different package from your certificate to ensure that it arrives with you in a nice, flat condition, rather than squeezed in with your purchases.
(Spaces are paid for in full, in advance, and sadly are non-refundable if cancelled with less than two weeks notice.)
