Instructors:

Eric Odie Roth is a lieutenant with the Westminister, Colorado He has been a firefighter and paramedic for over 23 years. He is a specially trained Safety and Medical Officer and gives seminars countrywide on K-9 first aid. 
He has trained over 2500 students in K9 First-aid and CPR since 2009. We offer in-person classes that cover over 20 topics including splinting, bandaging, how to control bleeding, snake bites, how to perform the Heimlich on a choking dog, bloat, CPR and much more. One thing we focus on is how to “read” the dog for signs of aggression and to see if the dog is approachable to provide care. 
He is the author of “K9 Medic” and will use top of the line manikins for our training. One of the manikins “Clyde” has all moveable joints which is used in the CPR section.  
Odie was a presenter at the National Service Dog Conference sponsored by Operation Fetch.
