Canine aquatic Treadmill Masterclass

K9HS has a straight forward registration process to ensure that we can adapt to your needs and experience level and answer all your queries.

We discuss your needs and you choose and select the techniques you wish to explore. We then devise your unique bespoke practical Masterclass experience and our training plan for the day focuses on you and your specific requirements.

Aquatic Treadmill Masterclass

Cost: £649

The course registration process starts with an online interview chat to learn about your clinical background and training requirements. Together we then agree on the best format to make our masterclass experience fit you.

After registration, the course begins with the release of the online theory-based section of the three units listed below. This gives you an opportunity to research and focus on the science based facts and knowledge prior to your 1-day practical. The theory units explore how to effectively use a canine underwater treadmill in relation to canine movement and function. We also include an invaluable unit discussing canine behaviours in a therapeutic clinical setting.

By dovetailing this essential information to current aquatic treadmill  treatment techniques you can offer the best service to your canine clients and owners.

Our 1-day Masterclass practical has a maximum attendance of 2 with a ratio of 1 to 1 with our advanced instructors who are leading canine veterinary physiotherapists and hydrotherapy specialists.
