Level 2 Training Details

LEVEL 2 TRAINING PROGRAM

By the time you have made it through our intense Level 1 training, you will have become aware of the bigger picture of canine water therapy... you will have felt the power of water first hand and have secured a safe way to introduce a dog in the water... you will have learned various holds to use while the dog is resting from swimming or receiving massage and you will have become comfortable with a basic recipe for a basic session. You will have been introduced to basic anatomy, gait analysis, massage, fascia, orthopedic surgeries and options. You will have learned about buoyancy and footwork in water and have become comfortable in water with dogs and with yourself...

Now - onto more .... Fun fun fun.....

LEVEL 2: Expanding the recipe and the support we give to our clients and your knowledge of anatomy and orthopedics. Deepening your understanding of the work and furthering your skills and confidence so that you can start (or deepen) your practice at home...

Level 2 will be limited to only 4 students so the one-on-one time is greater and so that we can customize more to you individually.

In Level 2 - you will come prepared with a report to share with your classmates on a joint in the body... its uses, its challenges, its injuries and potential surgeries.

Level 2 introduces us to harder dogs and first time dogs, listening skills and ways that we can be more present with our clients. Well each get a chance to get up and talk about a joint in the dog and further our understanding about anatomy. We discuss further the mobility aides and hospice care available so that we can be of better support to those with special needs. We go deeper into how to handle a new client and each of you will have opportunity to do your own private session from start to finish. We will talk about your unique gifts to the work and your own style. We will cover SOAP notes and what to keep in a client file. Well have a professional photographer come one day to take pictures and send you home with some materials to start your own marketing campaign and with more one-on-one time, well begin to explore further your own unique gifts to the work.

If you are interested in joining me in this deeper adventure into canine water therapy, please let me know!!!

It's an honor to work with you.

Thank you.
