CANINE ON-LINE FIRST AID
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 which will be delivered through the TEAMS software. YOU DO NOT NEED THE SOFTWARE INSTALLED ON YOUR DEVICE TO ACCESS THE TRAINING. The link will take you to the entrance hall where you will wait to be let in at the beginning of the session.
PLEASE DO TRY TO LOG ON nice and early on the day of the session so that any technical glitches can be resolved BEFORE the class gets underway. Once the session is in progress I’m afraid I will not be able to access my phone to address any problems until the half way break.
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.
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.
