Physical Dog: Workshop

Part 2 of 2
In Part 2 of Physical Dog, you'll take a hands-on approach to solidifying your existing understanding of canine skeletal and muscular anatomy and expanding it even further through practice with live dogs and skeletal models. The next step in understanding musculoskeletal structure happens here, when you'll learn where each muscle attaches to the bones. You'll also explore gait patterns and learn how to recognize movement imbalance and pain.  Being able to understand what's "normal," will make it easier to recognize when it's not. 

After completing Part 2, you'll receive your certificate of completion for the entire course.   

Trust and Relationship-Building with Dogs (Parts 1 & 2), Canine Massage Fundamentals (Parts 1 & 2), and Physical Dog (Part 1) must be completed before you are eligible to take this course.


CE hours are available for NBCAAM.

Case Study Practicum

Before you take your advanced massage workshops, we highly recommend that you put your new, foundational skills and knowledge into practice with the Case Study Practicum

Part of the certification program, the Case Study Practicum gives you the opportunity to select four dogs of your choice and work with them for five sessions each.  Dogs are our best teachers! You'll get real-world experience providing full massage sessions, which includes pet parent communication, application of appropriate techniques, and correct documentation.  You'll have your own Canis Bodyworks mentor to guide and support you along the way.

Once you've completed your Case Study Practicum, you'll be ready for the advanced massage workshops!
