Canine Massage Theory and Techniques

In the Canine Massage Theory and Techniques Program, Dr. Sue presents a comprehensive view of how the touch of massage affects the body, mind and spirit of the dog. Modules 1-6 stress how the eleven organ systems of the dog's body perceive, respond to, and heal with massage. Modules 7-12 present the application and appropriate use of more than 30 Swedish massage strokes. Upon registration, you receive a copy of Dr. Sue's book, Balance Your Dog: Canine Massage. Classes include downloadable handouts, video clips of each massage move, reading assignments in Balance Your Dog: Canine Massage, and tests that are immediately graded online.

The Online Class presents Modules 1-12 online. All the work is done in the comfort of your home with your own dog(s).
