CN3005: Canine Anatomy and Behavior Precourse Distance Study


This course is fashioned after our successful EQ50 Equine Anatomy Pre-Course Distance Study course. If you are planning on attending our signature CN3000 Caninology® Canine Body Worker (CCBW) Certification Course this is required pre-course study to prepare you for the certification course.

We are very excited about this course which was rewritten in 2018 by several veterinarians and Caninology CEO, Debranne Pattillo. We have fresh new illustrations to support the new manual which is over 145 pages. The illustrator, Rachel Walker has provided more canine muscle layers than most published anatomy books. We believe this new format and material will give this course the same success as our equine version.

Who should take this course? Dog owners, sport competitors, working dog owners, trainers, caregivers, groomers, bodyworkers, breeders, veterinarian technicians and assistants, physical therapists, kennel owners, pet sitters and anyone in the health care industry who would like to expand their current knowledge. Lay down the bones and learn those layers of muscles as well as veterinary anatomy! Understand what it means if someone says they are flexing or extending a joint or if they are abducting a limb. If you are serious about continuing on to learn bodywork as a professional, you need the lingo if you want to play with the big kids.

You will find it beneficial for any bodywork approach, biomechanics, lameness, grooming, conditioning or stretching course or workshop you plan to attend now or in the future. Get your head start now. This online course is now open to anyone wishing to broaden their knowledge of veterinary terminology, behavior and the musculoskeletal system of the dog. You will also find it very helpful if taking courses from any program including Caninology courses in anatomy, neurology, biomechanics and any other modality for dogs.

Signing up for this course now allows you the luxury of studying well ahead of time if you intend to take courses in the future, or if you are looking for a review. With the expanded CN3005 course, we have determined it takes around 100 hours to complete.
