Introduction to Canine Massage Workshop

About this workshop

Enhance your dog’s health through a greater understanding! This course was the first of its type back in 2003 and has now been presented all over the world. This workshop has evolved over the last 15 years in line with changing and developing knowledge and experience. This workshop is both a practical and theory session and is intended to introduce both handler and their dogs to the benefits of massage, and is primarily for those who have no massage experience or knowledge of animal anatomy.

The course will give practical instruction to enable the application of three techniques and learn a little about what is under a dog’s skin. How massage can influence this, through the understanding of how mobility issues can impact on the dog’s general health as well both psychologically and physiologically, especially in cases of arthritis and many other issues affecting mobility. And of course, you can bring your own dog too!

We’re pleased to say that this workshop is delivered in a variety of locations both in the UK and beyond. Please see below for information about workshops that are scheduled in the near future.
