Our Canine Therapy programmes are a unique blend of biological and therapeutic sciences relating to canines, the way they work, their health, their diseases, how they behave, and what can be done therapeutically to improve their well-being. The courses cover a wide variety of topics such as anatomy and physiology and biomechanics for foundation knowledge as well as more specific modules relating to hydrotherapy and massage therapy, in order to produce rounded therapists.
