These Canine Holistic Health and Therapy Courses will explore all of the other, often less invasive and kinder, dog health options available. We teach the fundamentals of canine holistic health whilst introducing all of the lesser explored natural approaches for dogs, to keep them healthy and happy well into old age.

Canine Holistic Health and Therapy Online Course Outline

Module 1: What is Holistic Health?

Part 1: Health in Focus!

The word "holistic health" is frequently misunderstood or mislabeled as a form of natural therapy. In reality, holistic health is merely a necessary approach to overall well-being. Holistic health simply refers to the well-being of the entire animal.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Health in Focus!
  • What Does Holistic Mean?
  • Conventional Health

Part 2: Where Does Science Fit In?

Herbal medicines are sometimes overlooked when developing a treatment plan for an individual, and many scientists dismiss homeopathy, producing an unwarranted negative perception among the general population. Regrettably, this deprives people, as well as their dogs, of the opportunity to enjoy amazing holistic health advantages. Natural therapy can be performed by a therapist who has perfected the treatment. Holistic medicine is always performed by a certified doctor.

Topics to be discussed include:

This section of the course is intended to demonstrate numerous information about each of them.

Herbal medicines have been around for a long time. Natural remedies have taken a back seat in the treatment of both humans and canines as a result of the success of conventional medicine.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Canine Massage
  • Tellington Touch
  • Canine Touch

Part 2: Massage and Manipulation

Canine Chiropractic

Chiropractic treatment for dogs has evolved into a highly successful process that realigns the skeletal system, easing pressure on the muscular and neurological systems.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Hydrotherapy
  • Reiki
  • The Reiki Ideals

Module 8: Physical Assessment

Part 1: Weight Gain

The act of assessing the dog holistically will be covered in this section. This section of the course is intended to fine-tune the student's observation abilities in all aspects of the dog's health and well-being in order to make a holistic assessment of the animal's health or behavior.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Weight Gain
  • Thyroid Concerns

Part 2: Weight Loss

Weight loss is more likely to be caused by illness or an ailment than by a change in lifestyle. Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, is the polar opposite of hypothyroidism and can result in rapid weight loss in dogs as well as restless, agitated, and agitated behavior. The dog's metabolism speeds up, causing food to be processed too rapidly, leaving the dog's body with little time to absorb nutrients.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Skin Problems
  • Digestive Problems

Part 3: Lameness and Limping

When evaluating a dog's general physical well-being, it's crucial to look at how the animal positions his body. The way a dog stands, walks, and reacts to physical contact is an excellent sign of what's going on beneath his skin.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • What Breed is the Dog?
  • How Does the Dog Stand and Walk?
  • How Does the Dog Feel and Act When Touched?
  • Joints in Focus

Module 9: Behavior

Part 1: The Alpha Dog Trainer

The ninth module will delve a little deeper into dog behavior. It will discuss how a dog learns to behave in a certain manner and what might be going on inside the animal to cause particular behaviors. Dog behavior is something that can, and probably should, be tackled from a holistic perspective.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Alpha Dog Trainer
  • Learned Helplessness- The Experiment

Part 2: Ownership Styles

The following ownership styles are common, and they can make it difficult for dogs and owners to get along because of a clash between canine behavior and personality and owner personality and ownership style.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Authoritarian Restrictive
  • Authoritative Flexible
  • Permissive
  • Holistic Behavior
  • Conditioning
  • Physical Concerns

Part 3: Sexual Behavior

A dog's behavior will vary as a result of hormonal changes in the body during puberty. Secondary sexual characteristics are what they're called. Due to an increase in testosterone throughout puberty, a male dog's secondary sexual characteristics develop and are triggered.

Part 1: Weight Gain

The act of assessing the dog holistically will be covered in this section. This section of the course is intended to fine-tune the student's observation abilities in all aspects of the dog's health and well-being in order to make a holistic assessment of the animal's health or behavior.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Weight Gain
  • Thyroid Concerns

Part 2: Weight Loss

Weight loss is more likely to be caused by illness or an ailment than by a change in lifestyle. Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, is the polar opposite of hypothyroidism and can result in rapid weight loss in dogs as well as restless, agitated, and agitated behavior. The dog's metabolism speeds up, causing food to be processed too rapidly, leaving the dog's body with little time to absorb nutrients.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Skin Problems
  • Digestive Problems

Part 3: Lameness and Limping

When evaluating a dog's general physical well-being, it's crucial to look at how the animal positions his body. The way a dog stands, walks, and reacts to physical contact is an excellent sign of what's going on beneath his skin.

Part 2: Ownership Styles

The following ownership styles are common, and they can make it difficult for dogs and owners to get along because of a clash between canine behavior and personality and owner personality and ownership style.

  • Authoritarian Restrictive
  • Authoritative Flexible
  • Permissive
  • Holistic Behavior
  • Conditioning
  • Physical Concerns
