Supporting your dog : Day 1 of 2

Supporting your dog to reach their full potential through every stage of their life – Part 1 of a 2 part workshop

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

£95 CPD (£10 discount applied to second 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 workshop focusses on the Senior Dog.  The session covers basic anatomy; possible health and mobility changes as they advance into their senior years; some conditions they may be affected by, such as arthritis, and how these can be managed; video observation and discussion; massage overview and how this form of physical therapy may be used to help the senior dog; a massage routine that is appropriate for daily use and some gentle stretches and exercises to keep our golden oldies in top condition.

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