Combined Equine & Canine Certification Class Schedule

No combined classes are currently being offered.

I have come to feel that the equine and canine programs are completed more successfully when they are approached as separate courses.

The canine and equine body differ greatly and the massage strokes involved in each must be adapted accordingly. Also, the approach to each class differs. For example, a dog is a predator and the horse is a prey animal. Therefore, the animal behavior must be handled differently. The dogs have more size and coat differences that must be dealt with. Strokes must be adjusted as well as your body mechanics. All of these differences are overwhelming to absorb in a week. The benefits to separating the classes far outweigh the convenience of the combined program.
