Dogs have always been a part of my life and I currently own two - Billy a 10 year old dalmatian and Lola a 6 year old terrier cross. I have trained them in both agility and obedience and regularly compete with Lola in agility.
I have spent two years training for my diploma in Therapeutic Canine Massage. I trained with Natalie Lenton at the Canine massage Therapy Centre and am now a fully qualified member of the Canine Massage Guild.
I decided to train in canine massage after I attended a one day massage workshop for the agility and sporting dog and really enjoyed. I then attended two further massage workshops and started to take my own dogs for regular massage therapy. I was really pleased with the results - my old arthritic dog became happier and more mobile and massage has helped my younger dogs overcome muscular injuries. I decided I wanted to become a canine massage therapist to help other dogs feel the benefit of massage as my own dogs have.
