CANINE MASSAGE COURSE GRADUATE SAYS:
"The way Michelle has put this course together shows the care and passion she has for animals. Any help and support you need is there. During the workshop she was questioned by students and kept answering until students were satisfied. Also the amount of content we are given, I think I could keep studying and learning for another couple of years or more. It was very professional but also down to earth, low stress, interesting and well spaced out course."
