PetMassage Foundation Level Program

The PetMassage Foundation Level Program gives you the training to create a successful canine massage practice, business and career. The skills you learn in this program will prepare you for providing massage for house pets, service dogs, sport dogs, dogs in a veterinary setting, and dogs in rehab.

This program includes massage skills specifically for dogs, dog handling in the context of a massage session, body mechanics (for you), basic dog anatomy, and a guide/marketing course to create your canine massage business. While some parts of your training can be completed at home, the hands-on-dogs instruction needs to be personalized for you, optimizing your intuitive abilities and personal style.

Your hands-on one-on-one instruction is in a 5-day on-site workshop intensive at PetMassage. Combine this personalized instruction with original PetMassage texts and tests, videos, two mini-workshops, research resources, home- study courses, and complimentary continued mentoring for the duration of your practice, and you have a comprehensive, total training program. This is everything you need to embark on a competent and successful canine massage practice.
