It was a magical week at the well-respected Northwest School of Animal Massage in West Seattle where I earned my Small Animal Massage Practitioner (SAMP) certification! Lola Michelin, Director of Education, Joan Sorita, Instructor, my classmates and ALL of the sweet dogs were a dream to work with.

52 hours Animal Anatomy and Physiology
28 hours Behavior and Handling
25 hours Animal First Aid
10 hours Business Practices and Ethics
My final exam classmate Sissy, a Chinese Crested love bug. Looking forward to offering natural pet care services in the Portland, Oregon metro area soon!
