Canine Massage Therapy for Health & Performance (career course)

Our career training course is based on objective, evidence based research and a thorough understanding of the dog. This approach takes into account the dog’s behaviour and psychology and its physical structure including anatomy and physiology with a specific interest in injury prevention and treatment and also the growing focus in biomechanics. We also cover a number of relevant supplementary subjects providing an ‘all encompassing’ programme of study, including a unit dedicated to building your business and the legalities involved with this. We will guide you on how to perform in clinical practice working alongside vets and other professionals. From the practical aspect we teach a host of massage techniques to produce a Therapist second to none with the skill and ability to work with a variety of dogs whether a family pet or a working or show dog. Our therapists will be able to use massage therapy to help with a huge array of musculoskeletal problems. Therapists will also be equipped to offer advice on many other elements of dog care, from a training course that is ‘all encompassing’ and second to none. Being supported by industry experts, we have all that you need in one place. This allows us to build long-term relationships with our Graduates, with on-going support throughout their career. 4 days followed by distance learning and 1 day interim review. We also offer teaching opportunities for our Graduates.
