Would you like to become a better K9 pain detective?

Sign up for an in-person K9 Pain Detectives workshop with certified K9 rehabilitation specialist and dog-pain expert Jennifer Holmes.

In this fun, interactive workshop, you’ll learn the telltale signs of K9 discomfort, pain or injury. We’ll focus on observing your dog in motion—walking, stepping over things, and running—so it will also be a fun day for your dog.


Our next K9 Pain Detectives workshop will be on Saturday, April 13, 2024 10am, at our private dog park, just north of Fort Collins, Colorado.

Jennifer Holmes performs a dog gait analysis in her K9 Pain Detectives workshop. One dog walks on-leash along the top of a stone wall. A second dog prepares to step over a series of low tree limbs arranged on the ground.
