  • For Your K9 1975 Cornell Ave Melrose Park, IL 60160 (map)

Canine Massage 101 | 9:00am - 11:00am | $50
Bring your dog to this 2 hour hands-on massage class and we will give you the basic tools to provide an assessment massage on your dog and show you techniques that you can use to relax your dog and to soothe those overworked and sore muscles. We will also teach low stress handling and ways to reduce anxiety.

Canine Communication | 11:30am - 12:30pm | $20
Dogs use body language to communicate with each other and with humans. Those who love dogs but don’t understand their language can send the wrong signals even with the best intentions. This class will help you to understand what your dog and other dogs are actually communicating. Learning dog speak will not only strengthen your relationship with your dog but help you interact with all dogs in general.

First Aid/CPR | 1:00 - 4:30pm | $75
Preventable accidents are the leading cause of death among pre-senior dogs and cats. That’s why canine professionals and pet parents alike should always be prepared to handle any emergency that may arise. In this 4 hour PetTech® certification workshop, students learn and practice what to do in a variety of emergency situations.

Topics include primary pet assessment, rescue breathing, CPR, choking management, and bleeding protocols. Students also learn the “Snout-to-Tail” assessment for wellness and injury, and what supplies to put in an effective pet first aid kit.

Class is taught by a certified PetTech® instructor and consists of a combination of lecture and hands-on application of concepts. Students who complete the workshop successfully receive PetTech® certification for CPR and first aid, which is valid for 2 years.
