Dogs first aid training lessons

This is our professional vetrenary training maniquin. It is the same size as a medium dog, it has a pulse so you can learn where and how to feel for the pulse – experience hear heart beat.

It has lungs so that you can give ‘rescue breaths’ ….mouth to snout.

The realistic tongue allows you to move it, inspect inside the mouth and and check the gums.

It is the next best thing to to practice CPR, experiencing the action of carrying out chest compressions.
screw-in-dogs-legWe have realistic training aids that represent some quite nasty injuries to a dog. This one shows a long screw embedded in the leg.

There is no doubt that the injured dog needs urgent vet’s attention. We train our students to prepare for the vet, not to replace them.

The caninie first aider may need to muzzle and restrain the dog to protect themselve from being bitten. Even the nicest and most pleasant, gentle dog can snap, bite or attack when injured.

Even approaching the dog in a non-threatening manner is crucial.

flatley-blanketCalming and treating the dog to reduce the pain and discomfort is a major part of our canine first aid course.

Learning to dress the wound, stop bleeding and transport the dog is another part of the course.

If you care for one or more dogs. it is your duty and responsibililty to ensure you and your staff are fully trained, awarded an accredited qualificiation, not a cheap basic lesson.

Our four hour Level 2 canine first aid course is fun, friendly and geared towards using the training aids to ensure you are confident and build skills in first aid in any dog..
