I became interested in canine aquatic exercise several years ago after Molly, one of my Pugs, became lame at 16 weeks old. As a Registered Nurse, I was aware of the benefits of warm water exercise for painful joints, and I decided to swim her. I was so amazed at how she benefited from the swimming that I decided to make it available to more dogs.
I had begun my journey towards my dream of opening this facility. I began studying human aquatic therapy, canine behavior, canine massage and canine water therapy.
So what is my fascination with training in water?
WATER IS THE GREAT EQUALIZER--MOST ANY DOG CAN PARTICIPATE.
I invite you to call to schedule a tour or a swim session at Paddling Paws.
