Welcome to PetMassageTM 

The more we learn about dogs, the more we recognize the obvious need for canine massage. 


There is an exciting and fulfilling future for those who learn to practice canine PetMassageTM professionally. 

There is a fulfilling and purposeful future to dog owners who incorporate PetMassageTM into their dogs’ daily care.


The techniques of PetMassageTM can help your dog at every stage of his life, from puppy, through adolescence, adulthood, senior citizen, and end of life.

You can make your dog/child more balanced and comfortable when you learn PetMassageTM skills.

This is the way to enhance your dog’s quality of life!


PetMassageTM is a gentle effective system of canine massage that incorporates many of the techniques used by professional massage therapists, animal trainers, handlers, and animal behaviorists.

For those who begin with a naturally intuitive comfort with dogs, and a need to help them applying non-veterinary skills, PetMassageTM techniques are easy-to-learn, a joy to practice, and immensely gratifying.


The PetMassageTM Training and Research Institute has many programs: training students the professional aspects of dry canine massage and WaterWork, teaching dog owners to include PetMassageTM as part of the daily care of their pets, teaching children PetMassageTM, animal handling, and safety skills, training RVTs so that PetMassageTM can be integrated with modern holistic clinical veterinary care, and training and licensing instructors to operate PetMassageTM schools.

Thank you for your kindness! I was very comfortable and I had a wonderful time in the workshop. In Osaka I could make a contract with some famous veterinarians. Thank you for putting me in the new world!!

I researched several animal massage schools before attending PetMassage Training and Research Institute. I felt PetMassage would best suit my needs. After attending your workshop I felt it had met my needs and greatly exceeded my expectations.
