PetMassage™ is valuable and deserves more recognition. One of our goals is to increase public awareness. We educate the public that it can be a beneficial modality and a successful and joyously gratifying vocation.

To serve that mission, Jonathan has represented the animal massage vocation as a featured speaker in several venues. He has been a featured speaker at H. H. Backer Pet Industry Trade Shows in Chicago and Baltimore, and the American Holistic Veterinary Association (AHVMA) Conference in Kansas City, MO.

He has spoken internationally, as well. In 2010 and again in 2014 he was a guest instructor for Massage Canine workshops in Angers (France), Paris (France), and the Crufts Show in Birmingham (U.K.).

Jonathan has been interviewed for his perspective as one of the pioneers and leaders of the canine massage industry.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Canine Massage in Rehabilitation
  • Dog Massage in the Veterinary Practice
  • Business Development: Working from a Happy Place
