Build Onto Your Foundation 

You will learn more about massage and its role in a dog's health and well-being, understand the difference between assessment and diagnosis, know what it means to stay within a scope of practice, and learn proper documentation techniques.

Learn Challenging Skills

More challenging skills take more time to learn, so you'll begin the multi-step process of learning palpation, which is as much an art as it is a science.  Additionally, the first step in your journey of learning canine anatomy and physiology starts here with an introduction to the integumentary, skeletal, and muscular systems.
