We are seeing that 80-90% of cases coming to us for behavioural therapy have problems also requiring physiotherapy. Most of these problems were previously undiscovered.

In order to effectively address behaviour problems we need to be able to fully understand the reasons for the existence of the problem.

We first need lots of information about your dog’s life from as far back as we can discover until present day. This means we need to ask a lot of questions to get the information we need.

We also need to meet you and your dog and spend time with you together in different environments so we can see how things happen in daily life.

We offer two types of behaviour consultation.

Comprehensive Canine Behavioural Therapy Consultation

with Julie Moss

80 – 90% of behaviour cases we see actually also needed physiotherapy for an underlying musculoskeletal condition. Most of these had been previously undiscovered. A simple behavioural therapy programme isnt enough to address this and you may also need some extra expert observations in order to secure a diagnosis from your vet if the problem is not highly visible.

This led to the development of this comprehensive consultation. There is both a behavioural and physical assessment and report to your vet. Packaging all these things together means that we can get as much information as possible to uncover the cause of the behaviour problem.

Believe it or not but there are many dogs out there who would benefit from physiotherapy, but nobody realises. The issue is that signs of problems are not always as visible as obvious lameness until they have been present for a long time, or unless they are as a result of an acute injury. Read our blogs (below) to find out more about hidden behavioural and physical signs of problems.

Our dogs are amazingly adaptable due to having four limbs to use. If one of them is not working very well and is causing them discomfort to use it then they will simply use the other three limbs more. Eventually they wear out the other limbs bit by bit until everyone can see they are lame or they fall down! Then they get a diagnosis, but it is very late on in the progression of the condition and more damage has been done over time than if it had been discovered years earlier.

Dogs can cope with quite high levels of pain and dysfunction in this way for a very long time. They can run and jump and seem to be normal most of the time.  However, underlying issues can cause what appear to be ‘random’ behavioural problems, as they are being asked to do things daily which are difficult for them, but nobody realises why.

Veterinary Physiotherapy Assessment

with Julie Moss

A physiotherapy assessment is necessary to begin with. This allows us to see where your dog is having problems and what we need to do to help.

After the assessment treatment sessions will be schedued according to the needs of your dog. It isn’t possible to say how many but a good place to start is to have a series of an assessment then 3-4 follow ups fairly close together.

Following that, a maintenance schedule can be decided to keep your dog on track. A report is sent to your vet so they are included in the process.

TTouch is one of our favourite therapies. It underpins all the work we do, much of which wouldn’t be possible without it. We offer it to clients wanting to learn as a one to one with their own dog or as a workshop.

Workshops are a more structured way to learn and you can see how several different dogs respond differently in that environment. You can bring a dog or come alone, whichever suits you best. Workshops are a great way for either professionals or casual canine enthusiasts to learn how to understand and observe their dog in more detail and learn practical skills to help them.

One to one sessions enable you to have a session with your dog alone, just learning what best works for them. This is great for dogs who wouldn’t be happy in a group setting.

Please note that only by completing the official TTouch Practitioner Training Course can you go out and teach TTouch to clients. Attendance at a workshop or one to one sesson does not qualify you to do that. However, if you just wish to learn more skills to help dogs you work with then a workshop is a great place to start. You can use the techniques learned as part of your work, but cannot teach them to clients.

 

Tellington TTouch

with Julie Moss

Choose from a full day workshop or a one to one session here at the centre,

Full day workshops cover a variety of TTouches, body wraps, observations and groundwork.

One to one sessions include any combination of the above that benefits your dog specifically.

If you know your dog is having mobility problems but are not sure what is wrong it can be better to have a physiotherapy assessment rather than a TTouch one to one, where you get both the TTouch information for your dog and more to help them. You would then also get the vet report to assist you in getting a diagnosis.

If in doubt you can bring a signed referral form with you on the day so either option is possible.

£65 - workshop place
