    Hi Lara,

    Thank you for your inquiry. We would require a minimum class size of eight people in a class.
    We can keep you informed of other people in your area who are inquiring about the Small Animal massage program as well.

    We do offer the Small Animal/Canine massage program as a distance study course with one-on-one Skype visits, as needed, with the instructor. Please let us know if you would like additional information on our courses and we will be happy to provide this.

    Thank you and have a nice day!

    I was curious how your school compares to those that offer levels 1, 2, and 3. I see your course includes more hours over all hands on, but does not have additional levels. Is there a specific type of class that is best for my situation? I have been working at a groomer since 2007 and was thinking this would be a good way to learn how to help animals in another way. In addition to being to perhaps combine techniques to make grooming a more pleasant experience. The idea behind this being to run my own business.

    I was also curious about the lodging situations and openings for the May class.

    Best regards,

      Hello Natalie,
      The best way to determine the differences between programs is to look at the hourly breakdown of the various subjects that are taught at each school. Our schools hours are listed clearly on our website. We only have one level and it is the level that we feel you would need to study to be a great canine massage therapist. There is no reason to have different levels, only different subject matter. We will help you to find a reasonably priced place to stay in Ojai if you do decide to take the class. Contact Jamie Roth at 805-640-9798 for more help is you are interested. Have a wonderful day. Nickie Scott

    My name is April Begosh. I have been a licensed massage therapist for 20 years and have just recently started adding work with animals to my services. I am really interested in your program and am curious if you have had a lot of requests for info about your program from people in the New England area or if anyone has inquired about having you come to New England to teach your program. Would you come as far as N.E. if we could get enough committed students?

    I am interested in your program and would love to know if you have any additional inquiries in San Diego to perhaps host a class down here. Also, can you send me more information on the distance learning? I am not sure I will be able to miss that many days of work at a time. I would love to know more! 🙂 Thank you!!

  • Laurie

    I am also in San Diego and would potentially be interested in hosting a class. I see above that 8 or more are required for a class. Do you have many other inquiries from the San Diego area?

    I am interested in the September session and was looking at the accomodations in the area. Do you ask your students to bring a subject to work on?

    I am curious if any of the class or online hours are RACE approved for CE hours in California. I am an instructor at Heritage College in Orange County and could host a course in Lake Forest if the hours are RACE approved.

    • admin

      No we are not RACE approved but we are looking into being able to provide CEU hours. We will keep you in mind and let you know when we have been approved and are ready to go. Thank you for your inquiry.

    I have two students looking for a certification course in either Ojai or the LA/SD area (or Northern CA). Is there a possibility of another course before September of 2017?

  • Chris

    IHi! I’m a physical therapist who practices integrative manual therapy. I’ve been wanting to expand my services to small animals, mainly dogs. I am interested in becoming certified with your program. Would you be able to offer another certification course in LA/OC/SD areas before Sept 2017?

    I am in Ireland and would love to study Canine Massage Therapy.
    However I have not yet found any courses in Ireland in this area. Could you please send me some info on the Distance Learning.

    Also would the certification awarded stand over here in Ireland?

    Thank you!

  • Eden

    Will there be another May session this year? There seems to be so much interest. I will also go to San Diego for the course if needed. Anywhere in California to fill. And I will bring my partner as additional enrollment. Please let me know when you have an on-site course with 2 vacancies thank you.

    • admin

      We will talk about it and get back to you. It might be possible. We will have to talk to the other people who are interested and see if May works for them. We will get back to you soon about this.
