This 90 minute workshop combines both lecture and hands-on lab time. Topics will include active and passive stretching, and the basics of performing massage on your pet. This course is designed for owners of all dogs, and provides an introduction to the benefits of adding massage and stretching into your daily routine with your pet.Each working spot is limited to one dog per handler. Please do not bring any dog not participating in the workshop as crate space is limited. **For those owners buying a working spot, please note- your dog must be able to be crated or lay quietly near you during the lecture sessions- any dogs that cannot sit quietly during lecture sessions will need to be crated/contained in the owner's car between lab sessions, to minimize distractions.** Please bring your own crates, and a towel or mat to lay on the floor to work on during lab sessions. Chairs and water bowls will be provided.
We have a total of 18 working spots, and 18 audit spots available for each session. Seats must be purchased by March 8, 2017
