What do you learn during the course

Familiarisation with the properties, the application possibilities (and contra-indications) of the tape material (VetkinTape) and the therapeutic possibilities of applying kinesiology tape on dogs. The tape offers support and contributes to the recovery process of a.o. injuries. All cases that will be dealt with during the course are recognisable for all target groups and frequently occur in practice. During the course, we will practice on dogs.

Experiences from trainees

“It were two interesting and instructive days. After more was explained about the functioning and possibilities of the tape, we were first allowed to practice on each other, fun! The practice, which included observation and taping, showed which techniques you can use, for which indications you can apply it and how quickly it works.”

Programme description

After a short introduction and some product information, on the first day you will be introduced to our five basic techniques in theory and practice. For example, you will learn how to apply kinesiology tape to back and croup muscle problems, as well as taping joints and tendons, e.g. the Achilles tendon. During the course, you will also learn how to apply lymph taping in practice. On request, we can give you insight, in an entertaining way, into the kinesiological examination of the material.

The different applications will be directly put into practice during the course under the guidance of our expert teachers, on both short-haired dogs and on dogs with a long or hard coat (depending on the dogs present). In addition, on the day of the course, we will once again clarify the details of the various techniques and make a comparison with kinesiology taping in humans and horses, especially given the successful treatments and results.

On the second day we start with a short feedback of the previous day, followed by a large practical part. Besides group research and evaluation of the effect of kinesiology tape on dogs with various complaints and injuries, there will be plenty of room for input of your own cases or cases brought in by us and you will practice these. For example, when taping the patella, the results of the different taping applications will be tested to gain insight into which of the learned techniques could be an advantage or disadvantage in the treatment of this complaint. A major point of attention is also the difficulty of fixing the correction technique, especially in dogs with long hair.
