Canine Massage Workshop June – Beginners

June 16, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Canine Massage Therapy for Sapphie the Lurcher

Canine Massage Workshop – Learn how to Massage Your Dog


At this Canine Massage Workshop you’ll discover the profound pain-relieving benefits this natural therapy brings.  Fully licensed by the CMTC, Angela Day from Born to Run is one of a handful of Instructors specialised in the delivery of this one-day canine massage workshop.  They are fun, interactive, and information-packed, and right for you if you’ve always wanted to learn how to massage your dog at home.

Working with your own dog for the day, not only will you learn life-changing massage techniques and routines, you’ll explore the wonderful world beneath your dog’s skin.

We cover the science behind the how and the why massage totally works, in addition to the positive physiological and psychological effects it has on our dogs.


Tutorial 1 – Canine Anatomy Fundamentals

Working with your own dog you’ll discover how to :-

  • Locate bony landmarks and why it’s critical before starting any massage routine
  • Find your dog’s main muscle groups
  • Spot subtle signs of muscular injury in your dog


Tutorial 2 – Swedish Massage Practice

  • Learn a massive 9 techniques from the discipline of Swedish massage.
  • Learn & practice passive range of movement – safely and in alignment!
  • As a matter of Best Practice, we ensure that each and every dog attending my workshop has full-body palpation.  This is a muscular health check which may flag up areas of muscular issue and pain or joint concerns that may mean a certain type of technique or passive range of motion may not be suitable for them.  This way I can ensure that each dog is given the appropriate massage techniques to suit them.

The muscular health check is offered to your dog as a free service and therefore does not incur any extra charge.


Tutorial 3 – Guided Routine and time for Self-guided practice.

I will demonstrate, and guide you as you apply the knowledge from the day to give your dog a full body 40 Swedish massage routine!

There is also time allocated for self-guided practice.  I will be on hand to answer any of your questions and to ensure you are comfortable, competent, and confident in your techniques and practice before you return home.
