Well done to all our course participants’ yesterday. Folks had travelled from as far as Waterford & Shannon. We had a very busy day all round. Karina & myself hope you all found it as rewarding & enjoyable as we did. Any poor canine mannequin that happened to be in the vicinity of one particular working group got bandaged whether there were any injuries or not. It is great fun to see imaginations take hold as people explore their new found skills.
Not content to work through the staged scenario one group had poor Petunia the poodle with a long list of injuries after chasing a ball which became lodged in her throat at which point she fell through a door leaving her with glass protruding from a laceration on her shoulder .Then it seemed the ball that had been choking her until removed using the abdominal thrusts managed to impale it self on her tail….I’m glad we only had tea and coffee on offer- goodness knows the scenarios’ that would have been compiled had fizzy drinks been available ???
Poor Petunia may need theraphy to recover from her ordeal !
A big thank you goes to Michelle who arrived for the course with 2 giant pavalova's ! We didn't even leave crumbs to tempt the weight watchers meeting there the following morning.
I was sorry not to have remembered to take a picture of you all with your certificates but well done to you all. Hopefully you will never be faced with a situation that requires you to use the knowledge you have gained . But if a situation does present itself hopefully your training can kick in and you will be able to come to the aid of a canine in trouble.
Updates for where we are going to be and what we have
