Canine Massage Class Scheduled in Grantsville

Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development will be offering a course, Canine Massage, on Thursday, March 8 from 6:30 p.m. until 9:45 p.m. The class will be held at the Garrett College Northern Outreach Center in Grantsville.

Canine massage therapy is beneficial for all types of dogs, from pets to dogs active in obedience, agility, search and rescue, police K-9 units and guide dogs. The massage sequence and benefits are the same for both groups.

Participants will learn 26 muscle groups on each side of the dog's body. Massage causes an immediate effect on dogs. Noticeable relaxation at first, followed by increased exhilaration. Medical science is making it possible for our dogs to live much longer lives. However, with that comes the problems that are associated with aging. Massage therapy helps the older, less active dog live a more comfortable life. Regular massage therapy can benefit your dog during recovery from injury or surgery.

This course is being taught by Debbie Daniels. Daniels is a certified animal massage therapist. She is a member of the International Association of Animal Massage and Bodywork and holds certification in canine and equine massage.
