Welcome to the Canine Rehabilitation Institute!

The Canine Rehabilitation Institute, Inc. provides veterinary and physical therapy professionals with top-notch training in canine rehabilitation. Classes are small and learning is hands-on with dogs on site providing real-life lessons in anatomy and biomechanics. Our instructors are recognized leaders in their fields — and they love to teach. They have also managed busy referral practices so they understand the business as well as the science of canine rehabilitation.
