No Pre-Requisites Required
No Prior Experience Necessary

The courses listed on this page have been created to cater to both those already in the industry AND those with little or no prior canine or animal experience. 

There are no pre-requisites. All you need is a passion to make a difference in the lives of dogs and their owners, a commitment to provide quality care to canines, and a willingness to learn all there is to know.

If you absolutely love the career or job you currently have then don't read any further! If you already bounce out of bed every morning with a sense of purpose knowing you are having a positive effect on the lives of our four-legged friends and their human carers then that's awesome! But if you don't greet each day with that level of joy and enthusiasm then read on to find out how you can change that.

It's now possible to have a career in the canine therapy industry

These courses are the gateway to your new career

As the number of households with dogs increases, so does the need for quality canine rehabilitation services. Canine Remedial Massage Therapists and Canine Hydrotherapists are becoming increasingly in demand worldwide with this continued growth of the canine health industry. Both roles offer dogs the chance to move better, recover quicker, and potentially live longer while providing you with the opportunity to do something you love.

Learn from the best - Your Instructor - Michelle Monk

Canine Physiotherapist & Human Physiotherapist with over 20 yrs canine clinical experience

Hi I'm Michelle, and over twenty one years ago I began the transition from human physiotherapist to canine physiotherapist. I had always had a huge love for dogs and was disappointed to discover that they didn't have access to the same quality rehabilitation services as we as humans do. I became determined to change that and have dedicated my life to it.

I went on to do my Masters in Animal Physiotherapy, open my own canine rehabilitation clinic, and designed and built the first underwater treadmill in Australia. I now get to help others around the world make the transition into the industry that has had such a positive impact on my life and the lives of thousands of dogs.

There's something so immensely satisfying to see a dog's life extended, to witness a dog walk again after being told it couldn't, and to have a dog recover fully from injury or surgery knowing it's because of the therapy provided by one of my qualified graduates. I feel so fortunate to experience this every single day and now I want you to be part of this too.

How Roonie changed my life

In 2003 I had not long opened my canine rehabilitation clinic when my husband and I were given the opportunity to take in a little Dachshund called Roonie. Roonie had recently had spinal surgery and her owners had been told she would never walk again. Consequently, she was unable to toilet herself or move around and her parents had been advised the best thing to do was to euthanise her.

It took a lot of hard work, lost sleep, and lots of washing, but after 5 months of intense rehabilitation, Roonie was able to walk again! She went on to live another six years as a valued part of our family and as a daily reminder that not only can we rehabilitate dogs but that we can also save lives.
