Valerie also runs regular courses, demonstrating how to treat your own dogs. She feels that it is important for the caring, responsible owners to know how to recognise when their dog needs a little extra help. This can be given by themselves, after learning the basic skills. The courses will also demonstrate when to recognise if the professionals need to be called in, thus reducing the knock on secondary and even tertiary affects from a condition.

These courses run regularly on a Sunday at The Dog Hut ( see ) in Polegate, near Eastbourne, East Sussex, see diary page, or at a venue and dates of your choice, if there are enough people attending.

The courses are kept to small groups, in order that you receive the best individual tuition to enable you to feel confident to give the correct treatment to your deserving dog.

The courses on offer are:

Massage Skills to help your dog stay fit and healthy

Healing your dog using the Meridian System

Healing your dog using the Chakra System 

Reiki for humans and dogs
