Dogs like humans need care & therapy from time to time. Many dogs suffer unnecessarily & in the caring hands of a trained K9 remedial massage therapist much can be achieved to assist a dogs healing and/or recovery. As with humans not all muscular skeletal conditions can be effectively treated with massage.

If you like to work with dogs and have a passion to assist our four legged friends there are opportunities to establish your own canine remedial massage service, whether that be from a home base or at canine events or working along side other animal specialist. Many dogs need rehabilitation such as show dogs, however many loved household pets also need care and attention after injury, illness or accident. If you own a dog (or dogs) you are sure to personally benefit from this training, have a lot to offer your own pet but also other dogs in need.
