Who is Rachel Bean RVN
Thank you so much for joining me to learn Canine First Aid and Wellbeing via my new On Line course.
For over 15 years I have been teaching 'Classroom' Canine First Aid Workshops and after many many requests I have now written a course for extra learning for anyone that would like to learn at home.
My 25 year career as a Veterinary Nurse means that I have extensive knowledge and experience of First Aid situations involving dogs that I can share with you.
I have attached my Career CV for you to have a look at for your interest.
I try to teach in a relaxed manner and very differently to the usual Courses so I hope you enjoy learning with me and my dogs Wisp and Chilli
