Learn to Massage Your Dog (all breeds)


Sunday, 9th August 2020 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm – a hands-on workshop for dog parents with their own dog

Kathleen has been teaching owners acupressure massage for their dogs for over 10 years.  Please note that this course is not suitable for those wishing to practice dog massage on a commercial/trading basis.

In this half-day workshop, you’ll learn how to give a full body acupressure massage and understand when it’s okay to massage your dog and when it isn’t. You’ll learn how to observe your dog’s movements (gait) and be ready to start keeping records from your massage sessions. Diet, supplements and senior dog care are also discussed. Each dog participating receives a free bag of fresh dog treats and owners a resource pack with useful goodies and samples.  Morning tea and nibbles are provided.

Venue is the Macfarlane Park Centre, 19A Acheson Avenue, Shirley which has plenty of on-street parking

We will ask you to complete a series of pre-workshop questions as part of your registration – these will be emailed to you.  Kathleen makes provisions for sensitive and anxious dogs with controlled introduction of dogs at the start of the class.

Payment is required to secure your place on the class; refunds are only made in the unlikely event that The Balanced Dog must cancel the class.
