The kennel management diploma course is designed for those who are interested in working with rescue dogs and kennels. In this course, students will gain a deeper understanding of how to properly care for canines and what they need for a clean environment that meets their needs. There is also a look at the emotional and mental health of the creatures and what can be done to minimize the amount of stress they feel when they are confined in a small space.
Broken down into six modules, this course will count for 60 hours of continued professional development for those who need it.
In the first module on kennel management, students will explore the basic needs of the canine. There is an overview of the five freedoms, and what properly caring for dogs means. Also explored are the nutrition that every animal requires and what foods should be offer to meet their dietary demands. Also reviewed is the emotional needs of these animals.
Module two begins to explore the health of the dog as it pertains to grooming and first aid. Students explore the basic needs of grooming and a look at what first aid is available if something should happen to an animal. There is also a section that covers on recognizing different emergencies, and treating them in a proactive manner.
This carries into the third module which deals with the health and general well-being of a rescued dog. Rescued dogs are special cases, because they are typically abused, mishandled, or homeless animals that are found. These animals need special care to trust humans again and to ultimately understand their immediate needs.
For Module 4, there is a look at the general signs of good health and illness in canines. This includes a look at diseases and what causes some of the most common ones. With this, there is also an overview of the best ways to prevent diseases from spreading inside of the kennel. Hygiene is also stressed in this module, along with providing the proper accommodations for pets and meeting the requirements of the laws of the area.
In the fifth module, students begin to understand how they can meet the emotional needs of dogs. This is done by understanding the origins and even the causes of aggression. This includes a specific look at the aggressive behavior of other breeds and how they can vary from one animal to the next. With this, there is also a look at how to enrich the environment to meet the exercise and mental stimulation of these animals, and even proper care for elderly dogs.
Finally, the six module discusses the topic of dog bite avoidance. With an understanding of aggression, students can use what they learned to spot it and understand the underlying causes of what has happened. Then safety precautions are looked at, as it is determined what the best approach is to take when dealing with an animal that shows aggressive behavior.
