There are many career opportunities if you’d like to work with dogs – including dog specific jobs such as dog grooming, dog walking to a complementary therapist for dogs (e.g. canine bowen therapy, canine massage, etc). Or you could be an all-round animal care professional such as a Veterinary Surgeon (specialising ultimately in small animal/ canine medicine), or Veterinary Nurse.
One of the most popular pages at the Taranet Holistic Animal Training Knowledge Hub is “how to train as a canine massage therapist”.
As with many complementary therapies for animals there is not a single qualification to obtain to become a canine massage therapist – and so deciding on what to choose to train in/ which qualification to obtain can be a challenge. My advice is to choose a course and qualification that is going to be widely recognised – this is important to ensure that both customers and Veterinary Surgeon’s alike can feel that they can trust your training. So perhaps select a course that is externally verified by a national (or international) qualifications authority.
Working with dogs to help relieve them of pain, stiffness and just generally make them feel better is incredibly rewarding – so if this is something you’ve dreamt of, then why not look into it today?! It’s never too late to make a change to help you to help dogs to feel happy and well.
