What Our Students Have To Say

These are just a few of the many kind words students have shared with us about their experience with our Workshops and the Team of PetMassage™ Training and Research Institute. You can see a full list on our Testimonials page.

I learned how to enter and establish leadership. WOW! The amount of confidence that was re-established in myself was amazing.

United States

This workshop will make me a better human massage therapist, veterinary professional and human being.

United States

I researched several animal massage schools before attending PetMassage™ Training and Research Institute. I felt PetMassage™ would best meet my needs. After attending PetMassage™ I felt it had met my needs and greatly exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Jonathan and Anastasia.

United States

Some of the dogs I groom are nervous. I’ve always wished there were something I could do to calm them.   Now that I’ve learned PetMassage™, well, I just want to thank you a lot.

United States

I always enjoy hands-on experience.  The evidence of the pendulum confirms for me, the power of energy fields around dogs. If there is something called an open minded skeptic that was me prior to the course.Now I’m all in. Off bodywork is real and beneficial… and I can, with the help of a dog, do it!!!  Anyone who wants to differentiate their practice from their competition needs this course.

United States

Monica walked in the room, very level headed, a strong leader, but with a softness, kindness about her, too. She showed us how to be leaders to keep dogs safe and happy; dogs are not effective leaders of people, we need to be effective leaders to our dogs. I loved that we were given the chance to lead a whole pack of dogs – how empowering! Thank you, Monica!

United States

I appreciated the open forum with the wealth of knowledge of Jonathan and Anastasia. I am so very grateful for your gift of presence for myself and all the dogs by sharing this knowledge. My intention is to honor this with my WaterWork™. Thank you for offering this course. Beyond my expectations.
