Your Choice!

Once you've completed Parts 1 & 2 of Trust and Relationship-Building with Dogs and Canine Massage Fundamentals, you can choose to take either The Physical Dog, or the Case Study Practicum.

Students who want more knowledge about canine anatomy and physiology sooner rather than later often choose to go directly to The Physical Dog, Parts 1 & 2.

Students who want to get out there and start practicing the techniques learned in the first two foundations courses often choose the Case Study Practicum as their next step.

There's no wrong choice -- it comes down to what feels most comfortable for you!
