Level 4 Certificate in Canine Hydrotherapy

The new Fast Track Level 4 Certificate in Canine Hydrotherapy offers you career progression from the Level 3 Certificate / Diploma, which is the minimum requirement for membership by NARCH and CHA and the first rung of the ladder in your hydrotherapy career if your background is not physiotherapy.

This professional award is specifically designed to advance your hydrotherapy assessment and treatment techniques so you can offer the dogs in your care a clinically reasoned individual programme that is holistic, effective and consistently achieves great results.

The Level 4 Certificate has a very strong practical component and is delivered by canine veterinary physiotherapists who specialise in advanced canine hydrotherapy (water based physiotherapy). We are the Professionals that train professionals and believe that you should have choices and access to high quality training.

As the first UK Accredited Clinical Educator in veterinary physiotherapy (awarded by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy), Barbara believes in empowering your professional development and will be delighted to be a part of your career journey.

We believe passionately in an animal centred and owner focussed service that makes a real and lasting difference, so that each dog can be the very best they can be and continue to enjoy those special moments with their human family.
