Confident Dog Handling for PetMassage Practitioners Mini Workshop
While many of the dogs that are brought to you for PetMassage will be easy to work with, other dogs are seeking the benefits of PetMassage because they have a problem to “fix.” In human terms, dogs may be experiencing pain, physical and emotional. They may be recovering from physical or emotional trauma as dramatic as being hit by a car or as everyday as falling off a sofa. They may be confused and disoriented. Their blood chemistry may be out of balance. They may be experiencing the signs and symptoms of old age. They may be in post surgery rehabilitation.
For your physical and spiritual safety, and for the physical and emotional safety of the dogs you will be handling, you must understand and “speak” the language, “canine. Speak the universal language of nature…the language of yoga. Yoga is nature. Dogs eat, breathe, sleep, and speak nature. Nature is where they live. Dogs get it. They begin to respect you. They cooperate with you.
This course will help you communicate more confidently with your canine clients. Dogs are more compliant, receptive and easy to massage when you talk to them in a language they understand. The concepts and dog handling skills in this course will enable you to be more confident working with many dog breeds, temperaments, and situations.
Learn safe and appropriate ways to interact with willful, reactive, or threatening dogs during each phase of a PetMassage session.
Note: This workshop is held from 9 AM to 1 PM on the second day of each Foundation Level Program.
