Overview: The 100 Hour Canine Massage Therapy Certification program is broken down into 4 modules of 25 hours each. The modules must be taken in order and successful completion of each module is a requirement to proceed to the next module. This is the foundational massage therapy training when it comes to learning dog massage.

Module 2

In this 25 hour module, you will learn Anatomy & Physiology (including Breeds & Conformation, the muscles of the hindlimb, the Systems of the body and how massage affects those systems), Kinesiology (including how to identify normal gait/movement and gait analysis for abnormal movement), Pathology (including pathologies affecting gait, common issues affecting breeds, common canine diseases and medications), and Integrating Assessment (gait analysis) & Therapeutic Massage Techniques (scar tissue massage/compensatory muscles) into a Full Body Canine Massage.
