Canine Hydrotherapy is one of the best forms of exercise for dogs as it engages nearly every muscle in the anatomy. It allows the dog to exercise in a non-weight bearing environment which relieves pressure on joints whilst encouraging a full range of joint movement, muscle development and improved cardiovascular strength.

Hydrotherapy is a fantastic addition to your dog’s exercise regime, whether it’s just for fun, weight loss or rehabilitation. It’s a stimulating, enjoyable way to help your canine enjoy a happier, healthier and potentially longer more effective life.


We offer the very best in Canine training. Our programme has been developed to give owners a head start in training the perfect family pet. Our training focuses on fun and reward based training giving both you and your dog valuable life skills and behaviours that will stay with you both for the rest of your lives together.
