Blue Dog Designs and Canine Rehabilitation Institute Announce the "Help 'Em Out" Contest for Veterinary Technicians/Nurses

Blue Dog Designs Help 'Em Up logoThank you for your interest in the "Help 'Em Out" contest. The contest is now closed. Please check back in April 2018 for an announcement of the contest winner.

Blue Dog Designs, makers of the Help 'Em Up™ Harness, is partnering with CRI to encourage veterinary technicians/nurses to pursue education in canine rehabilitation. The winner of the "Help 'Em Out" contest will receive free tuition for Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation, one of the three courses required for certification by Canine Rehabilitation Institute — a $2,900 value!

The "Help 'Em Out" contest is open February 1 through March 15, 2018.

Entrants will need to meet the prerequisites for CRI's Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation, and write 400-500 words explaining why they are interested in canine rehabilitation and what they hope to accomplish in their career.

The winner will be selected by representatives from Blue Dog Designs and CRI by April 1, 2018, and would be eligible to attend Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation as early as June 9-13 in Wheat Ridge, Colorado.

To qualify for the contest, entrants must have successfully completed an approved veterinary technician program and must be able to provide proof of licensure, registration, or certification in the state where employed. Entrants must be employed by a practice where there is a veterinarian or physical therapist certified in canine rehabilitation or registered for Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation. The contest is open to new Canine Rehabilitation Institute students only.

The contest entry form will be available from February 1 through March 15, 2018.
