Pet Tech Pet First Aid Instructor Training
Classes starting January 1, 2017 have moved to our Canine Sports Park. We are currently under construction and classes initially will be held in our home. What you need to know is our property is an off the grid homestead and Canine Sports Park (Agility, Dock Diving, Herding and Search & Rescue Training) currently under construction. As construction is underway, you may see open/studded walls, insulation, construction lights and a basic concrete floor. For winter classes we heat with wood and do our best to keep the temperature around 70 degrees. We do not have an internet connection but your phones and mobile data should work well in our home.  Once you arrive our home is a 1/3 mile off of Pine Street, primarily up hill on a gravel driveway. I recommend dressing as if you we were visiting a farm. With all that said you may also enjoy meeting some of our 2 or 4 legged friends, 6 Nigerian goats, our 4 loved Aussies, 2 cats, 9 Indian Runner ducks, a Guinea hen, and many Jersey Black Giant Hens and Red Bourbon turkeys. Coming in the spring pf 2017 2 pigs and some sheep. And you will also have the advantage of seeing some of the first aid supplies and nutrients I use for my own pets. Classes are rarely if ever cancelled and I have taught classes for only one person. If I have only 1 registrant for a class I will let you know and give you the option of attending the scheduled class or a future class.  Please feel free to call with any questions. What's The Program?The Pet Tech Instructor Training is a comprehensive, three-day, interactive program. Instructors will learn the necessary skills and teaching methods to properly train pet owners in first aid and care. This course will include competent training in the identification and evaluation of the signs and symptoms a pet may develop and the appropriate actions to be taken for proper emergency medical treatment. Who Are Our Instructors?The Instructor Training is ideal for: obedience trainers, kennel operators, pet retailers, pet sitters, veterinarian staff, animal shelter employees, pet rescue personnel, pet groomers, EMT's, fire fighters, and any pet lover. "Pet Tech is a vital part of my dog training business. It has been a vehicle which has increased my access to pet shelters and Humane Societies in my area. The first aid program has become part of the offered training to the staff of more than one of these shelters as a fund raiser, even being included in the curricula for a dog trainers academy. I think all dog trainers should have first aid training to provide for their students."- Lisa Clifton-Bumpass, Pawsitive Steps Dog Training What's The Market?Pet owners consider their pets to be their best friends, members of their family and lifelong companions.

PetSaver / Pet First Aid & CPR

Special Note!!!!!! Classes starting January 1, 2017 have moved to our Canine Sports Park. We are currently under construction and classes initially will be held in our home.   What you need to know is our property is an off the grid homestead and Canine Sports Park (Agility, Dock Diving, Herding and Search & Rescue Training) currently under construction.

For winter classes we heat with wood and do our best to keep the temperature around 70 degrees. We do not have an internet connection but your phones and mobile data should work well in our home.    Once you arrive our home is a 1/3 mile off of Pine Street, primarily up hill on a gravel driveway. I recommend dressing as if you we were visiting a farm.   With all that said you may also enjoy meeting some of our 2 or 4 legged friends, 6 Nigerian goats, our 4 loved Aussies, 2 cats, 9 Indian Runner ducks, a Guinea hen, and many Jersey Black Giant Hens and Red Bourbon turkeys. Coming in the spring pf 2017 2 pigs and some sheep. And you will also have the advantage of seeing some of the first aid supplies and nutrients I use for my own pets.   Classes are rarely if ever cancelled and I have taught classes for only one person. If I have only 1 registrant for a class I will let you know and give you the option of attending the scheduled class or a future class.    Please feel free to call with any questions.     Description: All our Pet First Aid and CPR classes are approved for CEU's by many organizations including: MA Certified Veterinarian Technicians CCPDT PSI NAPPS North Carolina Veterinary Board Others We can also apply for others if you are required CEU's with in your orginization. Do not let this scare you off. All pet owners will greatly benefit from this class. This just shows the level of the class for our students.   The Pet Saver / First Aid and CPR program is aproximately 8 hours in length and is the recommended course of instruction and includes all three classes.   PetSaver (Approximately 8 hours)(8am - 5:30pm) The PetSaver class includes three seperate programs combined into a one day class. They are: 1. Pet First Aid & CPR (Approximately 5-6 hours)(8am - 2pm) One of the most important and vital items you will learn in this class is the Snout -To-Tail assessment. This skill alone is worth the price of admission Restraining and Muzzling Primary Assessment Rescue Breathing Canine and Feline CPR Choking Management Snout-To-Tail Assessment Assessing the Pet's Vitals Handbook Insect Bites & Stings and snake bites Heat & Cold Injuries Seizure 2. Caring For Your Senior Pet-izen  Part of being a caring, conscientious, and responsible and loving pet owner includes helping the pet into its “golden years.” Medically speaking, “old age” for pets is considered a condition and not an illness or disease.  There are many preventative measures that you can do now to increase the quality and quantity of your pet’s life as they become “senior pet-izens.”  This course will teach you to create a lifestyle for your pet that minimizes the risk of illness, injury and disease and, at the same time, maximizes the quality of their life and your relationship with them. 3. Dental Care For Your Pets  Your pet not having their teeth brushed for the first 3 years of their life is equivalent to you not seeing a dentist until you were about 20 years old.  Imagine what your mouth would look like, what it would smell like if you didn’t have any dental care for the first 20 years of your life!  This course will teach you how to properly brush your pets' teeth, how to recognize the signs of periodontal disease, the four stages of periodontal disease, and what you should do if you suspect your pet has periodontal disease.  You can read more about this program and others at: www.jimhelemsdogpals.com You can see all out Pet First Aid products on our shop: www.dogpalsshop.com   About your instructor.   Jim Helems currently owns Jim Helems' Dog Pals.
