Way more than just dog training...
Really good animal therapy requires empathy, deep knowledge, endless curiosity and flexibility
it's all about the dog
At Canine Mind and Body Balance we believe the animals who come for therapy should be treated with respect. We nurture co-operation with our canine clients and work within their range of skills and abilities. If they really cant, or dont want to do something, we wont force them and will seek to find an alternative.
This means we have a very flexible approach to canine therapy and treat each dog as an individual with their own needs and abilities. Years of training and practical experience means we have a wide range of skills and techniques to choose from and this is what makes our therapies successful.
First we start with the most simple things and that is often where you see the most change
Looking for dog training?
Your dog has a whole different reality to you
This means that when they seem to be getting upset about nothing it is because it is outside of our ability to identify. Hover over the arrows below for just a few reasons why your dog's world, and therefore experience, is very different to yours.
There is also a strong emphasis on education here at the centre and we aim to take the mystery out of CAM therapies and help people to understand how they work and how they can benefit our dogs.
BSc. Hons. AdvCertVPhys, Dip.APhys
Hi! I am Canine Behaviour Practitioner, Veterinary Physiotherapist, TTouch Practitioner and founder and owner of Canine Mind and Body Balance.
I have a BSc. Hons. Degree in Animal Welfare and Behaviour, an Advanced Certificate in Veterinary Physiotherapy, a Diploma in Animal Physiotherapy and I am a P1 TTouch Practitioner. I am a member of the TTouch Guild in the British Isles.
I specialise in identifying underlying physical causes of behaviour problems in dogs. Upwards of 80% of my behaviour cases over recent years have had an underlying musculoskeletal problem causing pain or dysfunction to the dog so my passion is helping people identify these hidden causes so they can get the appropriate treatment. My greatest business achievement is the building of the Canine Mind and Body Balance centre and the developement of integrative therapy there to help address these problems.
I have been living with dogs for 32 years and has been working with them for 17 years and during that time I have shared my life with a number of amazing animals .
All of my animals have been inspirational educators and have each helped me to expand my skills and knowledge base in my quest to discover therapies and solutions which enhance their lives.
I look forward to working with you and your amazing dogs.
