Supporting your dog : Day 2 of 2

Supporting your dog to reach their full potential through every stage of their life : Day 2 of a 2 part workshop

With Dr Les Ellam & Cathie Forbes – Hove, East Sussex

£95 CPD (£10 discount applied to this workshop if attending both) (7 hours IAAT accredited)

Dr Les Ellam (AchyPaw Canine Physical Therapy) & Cathie Forbes (Southdowns Canine Therapy) are delivering two workshops focussing on the continuing health of your dog through massage and physical therapy to help maintain the muscular health of your dog from puppy hood to white whisker years.  Both workshops are interactive, informative and practical with case studies, videos, discussion and most importantly, hands-on practice.  Each delegate is given ample opportunity to experience the massage routines with their own dog under the guidance of two experienced professionals.

This second workshop focusses on the Earlier Years.  Just because a dog is not showing signs of slowing down or discomfort, doesn’t mean that they won’t benefit from a daily conditioning massage and exercise routine.  This session covers puppy exercise and development; the importance of getting it right from the beginning; repetitive soft tissue injuries/strains and how to avoid them; video observation and discussion; benefits of massage; dynamic warm-up exercises and warm-up massage; adapted movement patterns and making simple changes that can make all the difference to your dog when they advance to their senior years.

Important : As the workshops are practical in focus, delegates need to bring their own dogs and a blanket or mat to work on.
