I participated a Dorn method for dogs course held in Prague between 23rd and 25th October 2015. The course was Organized by Andrea and Martin Duna who developed this method for animals.

On Friday evening, the first day of the course, we got to know the Dorn therapy and we tried to find some bones and palpation on each other.

On Saturday and Sunday the course took whole day. On Saturday we started with forenoon anatomy theory block. Due to fact I passed an anatomy degree examination this spring I’ve had  this problematic still in head. After the noon we started a practical part – work with quarters. On Sunday morning we repeated the work with quarters and continued with spine. Before we got our certificates, we also saw a work of cupping.


My partner for the course was very patient Donatello. The pictures from the course are here.

My participation on this course was kind of coincidence due to Tess’ paralysis this June. I would never imagine I could be so passionated for this kind of activity. After three days of this course I’m decided to contiue in developing my skill in this way and I want to practice the Dorn method in future. Tess will go to more skilled therapeutist’s hands as I as a beginner can only work with healthy dogs as prevention. We are only waiting for her x-rays to be delivered.

At the moment I’m an absolvent of the basic course and I need to practice and practice and practice what I will do with our five healthy dogs and other people interested.

In the spring I plan to attend a practical seminar and I would like to continue towards to be the recommended therapeutist.
