Small Animal Massage Certification Program™
Our mission: At Doggone U, we believe the time has come for massage to join the health services and modalities available for animals. Currently, no national licensing or certification requirements exist for animal massage, and we are prepared to set the standard in this field to ensure competency and excellence.
Note: Small Animal classes are now held at Destination Dog, 7 Forge Parkway, Franklin, MA. The program is on hiatus due to COVID. Please sign up for our newsletter in the lower left corner to be notified when the next program is scheduled. The equine program is being held in March of 2022.
Our goal is to extend our experience and expertise in massage education to the animal world by offering comprehensive training in small animal anatomy, non-invasive basic and advanced animal massage and bodywork techniques, ethics, and business practices. Our goal is to have graduates who will be viewed as competent animal massage professionals who have a valuable service to offer the pet owner, the veterinary community, and other related businesses and organizations.
Upon completion of this program, you will have the skills needed to:
Offer your professional services in pet massage in veterinary offices, grooming salons, pet shops, pet supply stores, agility clubs, canine clubs, animal organizations, etc.
