for therapists

Advance clinical skills for the dogs in your professional care.

Micro, bitesize, mini and short CPD courses to choose and explore.

Toolboxes of Templates and Videos, plus a sharing inner community.


K9 Therapy Hub is an immersive experience of micro, bitesize, mini and short CPD courses, templates and resources. These are designed to transform your canine practice and advance skills, with active support in our integrated community. 

Let me ask you a few questions…


  • Are you feeling pressure or limited in your clinical practice and not sure WHY?
  • Do you believe that you need to progress your skills but don’t know how to get there?
  • Are you frustrated by the lack of specific high quality clinical CPD courses for therapists?
  • Are you struggling to find the time due to your workload and busy life to meet your annual  professional CPD requirements?
  • Would you like to take a leap forward in advancing your clinical and practice skills, but feel that the shortage of high quality and relevant canine courses is holding you back?

Don’t worry! You’re not alone.

This is exactly why we created the

K9 Therapy Hub

The K9 Hub is really amazing!  K9HS has really outdone themselves creating a space of useful information related to dogs for canine professionals.

I love the “OneShot videos” demonstrating therapeutic techniques and appreciate the articles, containing pertinent scientific studies.

This helps me solidify my knowledge and grow my “clinical skill-set” so I can make a positive impact on the lives of my canine clients and their owners.

The K9 Hub is an excellent source of information for all canine therapists.

To be able to find so many exciting and varied topics in one place for your CPD requirements is so helpful.

It also makes it really easy to be able to refer back and find sound clinical reasoning and helpful clinical tips.

Being in touch with Barb through booked calls makes it feel like a real community!

As a busy working clinician, it’s always challenging to find clinically relevant CPD courses that are flexible to access! The K9 Hub is just that! There is a vast amount of information available, but unlike many other CPD courses, it’s incredible value for money, plus presented in a dynamic and clinically relevant way.

The layout is very user friendly and I can genuinely say that it has had a positive impact on my clinical practice. I would highly recommend it to everyone!

I cannot recommend this amazing Hub enough. Whilst we want to learn, refresh and obtain more information, it tends to be long days of cpd which include travel, time and cost, and not always suited to our learning style.

This Hub enables you to learn and refresh at your own speed and to delve deeper into the topics of your interest. It’s affordable and if you’re like me, being relaxed and comfy assists me to achieve an enriched learning pathway that relates to my clinical practice.

So, sign up, get comfy and be ready to learn from this amazing resource.

The K9 Hub enables me to study and watch topics again. I am dyslexic and so find it necessary to learn and review topics. Being a member helps me to learn at my own speed. The videos and how the information is explained in each topic is easy to follow and understand. 

I also can contact Barbara if I am struggling or need support. Barbara always makes me feel relaxed and learning is easy. 

K9HS cares about helping me succeed and get the most out of my hydrotherapy knowledge and CPD.

Thank you Barbara, you are our canine hydro Guru!

An animal massage colleague led me to K9HS and I am so glad. Once I viewed a couple of the bitesize canine anatomy webinars and was completely hooked. As someone of moderate experience in small animal massage, the resources are invaluable.

They are a quick and easy time commitment and presented in a wonderful manner. I now find myself thinking back to a video as I work with a dog (“a ha!” moments).

I know my more experienced colleagues enjoy the resources too – credit to Barbara and crew for making the materials so enticing and relevant, it’s two paws up from me!

You probably have some questions like:

Why did you create the K9 Therapy Hub?

We listened to feedback from therapists worldwide who are challenged to find canine CPD from a clinical perspective. As experienced solution makers, we devised our Bitesize Canine Anatomy series and published part of this on our K9HS YouTube channel. This led to an amazing reaction and we followed through to launch our successful Canine CPD Library to support working therapists.

Its been a natural pathway to revolutionise and evolve these, offering the complete CPD clinical experience through the K9 Therapy Hub, perfect for canine therapists.
