The course is designed to give you a sound knowledge in the basic anatomy and physiology of the dog. It’s great for students who would like to broaden their knowledge before or after different canine courses they may be taking such as hydrotherapy or grooming. It is also great for those who studied a long time ago, and feel they need a revision.
This course is aimed at students with no prior knowledge of canine anatomy and physiology. It can act as a primer for those wishing to complete our Canine Myotherapy diploma, however if you are looking to go on to study this diploma our Full Course is available.
Our course pack provides full details of the course, including structure, content, and prices.

This is a purely theory course, which consists of several units of home study.
It’s divided into four units, each containing a number of tasks and learning topics (generally around 6/7 tasks within each unit). Our students must complete each of these tasks and return to their tutor for assessment via our secure student portal. This ensures regular constructive and open feedback so all students are clear as to the expectations of the course.
The Total Learning Hours are 240 hours with each unit taking around 60 hours to complete. If you choose to have your work accredited through Laser Learning Awards you will receive 24 credits.
The theory units cover relevant areas Canine Anatomy and Physiology and are completed by using our learning resources.
