About your Course

Canine massage can be used to treat a number of issues common in dogs or that are recovering from treatment or trauma. As in humans, massage can help to reduce stress and anxiety, improve circulation, alleviate muscle and joint pain and help to boost the immune system.

For older dogs or breeds that have known health or physical issues, this can make a difference to a dog’s quality of life.

The Principles of Canine Massage is an introductory CPD course for anyone interested in a career as a Canine Massage Therapist. Canine Massage Therapists often work alongside vets to provide additional services to aid in the treatment of various conditions improving the animal’s quality of life.

The course covers canine anatomy and physiology, exploring canine bodily systems and their functions. This will allow you to identify areas of concern and develop treatment plans for the animal.

You’ll develop your knowledge of various massage techniques and how to properly apply them to canines. You’ll also gain an understanding of current animal welfare legislation and how that applies to you in your career as a Canine Massage Therapist.

Upon completion of this course, you’ll have fundamental knowledge of canine massage. Which provides a strong base to build on with further study.
