All About the Dog – Therapy is a holistic pet service specialising in ensuring the whole dog is balanced from nose to tail. Using a combination of Tellington TTouch, Applied Zoopharmacognosy, Canine Musculoskeletal Therapy to improve your dogs overall well being, fitness and Behaviour.
Tellington TTouch is a respectful way of working with animals which improves a variety of behavioural issues such as fear, anxiety, reactivity, pulling on the lead, hyperactivity for example (there are many other ways it can also help) and increases the bond between dog and owner. TTouch recognizes the link between posture and behaviour and by working with the WHOLE dog problems can in most cases be alleviated.
I am also Canine Musculoskeletal Therapist! Combining canine remedial massage, myofacial release stretching techniques and specific therapeutic exercises in all our sessions to positively improve, rehabilitate and maintain your dogs musculoskeletal system. We can improve your pet, show or sporting dogs fitness, stave off injury, help them recover quicker from injury or surgery, relieve pain of arthritic joints and sore muscles that come with aging, improve mobility, helping to calm and relax your canine companion. Keeping your dog in tip top condition is paramount to me!
That’s not all – My specialist 121 dog walking service for dogs that need a little extra help and support both physically, emotionally and mentally have proved really popular. I walk reactive dogs, elderly dogs and dogs that just require a little extra space and have specific rehabilitation plans for dogs with injuries where we gradually build up their strength and fitness so they are able to return to group walks with their friends. This is the only dog walking service in the area that is carried out by a qualified therapist that understands how to exercise your dog safely after they have suffered an injury.
I will happily work alongside vets and other canine professionals to ensure you dog gets the maximum benefits from what we do.
I am an Applied Zoopharmacognosy practitioner, and give pet dogs the opportunity to self medicate from an array of therapeutic/medicinal plant compounds in the form of dried plants, leaves, flowers, roots, algae, mineral, essential oils, aerosols, fixed and macerated oils. Facilitating the dogs innate ability to detect medicinal compounds within plant that they need in order to combat issues within their health, wellbeing and behaviour.
I am FULLY insured, DBS Checked and Canine First Responder Trained.
