1. Airway – Clear the airway of secretions or obstructions.
2. Breathing – Fold your hand over the muzzle to prevent air from escaping from the lips, then blow into the nose. Make sure that the chest wall expands when you blow into the nose. Breathe at approximately 20-40 breaths per minute.
3. Cardiovascular – With the dog laying with the right side down, kneel against his back and place your hands over the middle 1/3 of the ribs at the level of the armpit. Compress the chest at approximately 80-120 compression per minute. Feel the pulse at the femur (inside of thigh) when you compress to assure that and place it under the chest wall to achieve more efficient compressions if necessary. If you are alone compress four times and then breathe once and repeat.

Just as you and I carry a personal EDC in our daily lives the same is true of BigLenny. Whenever we leave the house at least one if not both of BigLenny’s EDC’s come with us. In my past I became used to having a prepacked Pouch/Bag/Pack ready to go dependent upon the situation/need/mission/etc. This got me a little spoiled or what my wife now calls a BAG SNOB. She uses “Bag” interchangeably for pouches, bags and packs, but the SNOB remains the same.

What can I say? I like my “bags”!

Anyway back to BigLenny. When I dove into the Service Dog Training I began learning about what was required of us including keeping a Canine E Kit. After seeing what I would need to carry I decided it made sense to create two EDC’s. One Small EDC – E Kit for every occasion including quick, light trips and one Large EDC – E Kit for longer, extended trips and or with a larger number of dogs. Anytime I go anywhere, my Service Dog BigLenny goes with me so one of these EDC’s goes with us as well. Now these do not replace my EDC. These are completely different and stand-alone.

As far as I know, with the spread of the project "STOP THE BLEED", more and more people have realized the importance of being prepared all the time to face any emergencies. And products that are more practical and more functional is in need. We welcome more users and customers to tell us their need in regards of such medical gears.:D
