We've been teaching local dog parents in Christchurch the basics of dog massage since 2010.

The next workshop is on Sunday 22 March 2020 from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm at the Macfarlane Park Centre, Shirley.

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 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. Afternoon tea, too!

Payment is required at time of booking to reserve your place on the course; completion of a pre-course questionnaire is a requirement for attendance (this will be emailed to you).
