EMS Safety is always looking for ways to give back. This month, we are helping raise money for a guide dog in training. His name is Bolo. A member of the EMS Safety family has a Skilled Companion Service Dog named Michaela. Seeing Michaela’s ability to assist in every day tasks many of us take for granted has enlightened us to the impact service dogs make on the lives of those who they serve.
Dog is Good, a locally owned dog boutique will be raising Bolo for the first year. To help assist in the veterinarian bills, food and training costs, we will be donating 10% of all sales from our Casper Dog Manikin and Canine CPR DVD Combo, and 30% of sales from our DogGoneIt Canine Emergency Kits.
By supplementing your CPR, AED and First Aid course with an optional Canine CPR section, you’ll be helping those in need of a service dog, while also offering additional curriculum that will set your courses apart from others offered in your area.
- Canine CPR DVD, features assessment of the dog, preparing the dog for CPR, demonstration of breathing and compression techniques for one or two people, and benefits of learning canine CPR.
- Simulaid Casper Dog Manikin, features nares, retractable tongue, moveable jaw, sanitary replaceable airway, foam filled body for chest compression resistance, and a femoral pulse.
- Contains recommended items to keep your pet alive and happy during a disaster. Features a 5 year shelflife.
- (1) tennis ball, 3 gallon bucket w/ lid, 58 piece First Aid kit, pet disaster information, leash, collar, 50′ rope, can opener, bloodstopper.
- (2) blankets, lightsticks, bowls
- (3) chewsticks
- (6) waste disposal bags

The BOLO Project was conceived as a way to raise awareness of the remarkable work dogs do for people every day. Under the auspices of Leader Dogs for the Blind, Dog is Good will raise a future leader dog for its first year.
Founded by three Detroit-area Lions Clubs members in 1939, Leader Dogs for the Blind provides guide dogs to people who are blind and visually impaired to enhance their mobility, independence and quality of life. Each year, over 270 clients attend our 26-day residential training program to be paired with a guide dog. This is a life-changing event that opens the door to independence, safety and self-worth for many of our clients.
