A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
My name is Angie and I'm a CCBW certified and insured body worker.
I'm also a member of IEBWA-Small Animal Division.
I have been crazy about dogs for as long as I can remember.
I first became involved in dog sports with my "heart dog" Wonder, a Border Collie x Staffordshire terrier. We played some fly-ball, barn hunt, dock diving and later began training and competing in agility. It was during this time that I realized how important it was to maintain my dogs overall body condition to keep her in top form. Not only keeping her fit for all the activities, but also taking care of her afterwards so that she could continue to be active for many years to come. I currently train and compete in IGP (Schutzhund) with my German Shepherd, Attila.
My goal is to make your pet comfortable and feeling their best. I strive to expand my knowledge in this field and believe in the importance of continuing education to keep up to date on the latest in the industry. I attend classes/courses that I feel will benefit my clients.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT I DO
Using canine massage, a non-invasive therapy, to manipulate soft tissue helping to keep your dog flexible and mobile at any age. This is a complimentary treatment to veterinary care. Massage therapy does not cure any ailment, but will improve your dogs mobility/range of motion and relieve pain or discomfort(arthritis/dysplasia) among other benefits which include:
alleviate discomfort during growth spurts
relieve muscle strains/spasms
enhance circulation and immunity function
help reduce the effects of muscle atrophy
Whether you're looking for pro-active therapy, maintenance care, sports massage or palliative care for an aging dog - Your dog deserves it!
