A little bit 'About Me', PawsOn owner Jackie!
I have had a love of dogs since early childhood that has continued throughout my adult life and have a natural draw towards the psychological and physiological aspects of our canine companions.
I have become increasingly interested and involved in canine behaviour and training over the last 20 years. Starting with voluntary evening work instructing at my local dog training club, I felt compelled to improve my knowledge and was motivated to undertake a distance learning course in Canine Behaviour and Training. This progressed to teaching and competing in agility and I am an ‘approved instructor’ with the Agility Club.
My interest in canine massage began when my 9-year-old German Shepherd, Wolf, was diagnosed with degenerative joint disease, similar to osteoarthritis. He was subsequently treated with physical therapy and I was enlightened to the difference this made to his quality of life. This inspired me to take my diplomas in Galen Canine Myotherapy and Exercise Physiology.
Dealing with muscular issues and improving the wellbeing of your dog through canine massage and training are my passion. I believe my technical expertise and life experiences working with dogs, together with my academic achievements provide me with the skills and attributes to enable me to give your dog the best possible outcome.
I am a member of the IAAT, a leading body within the animal therapy industry, and I am committed to further professional learning and keeping myself abreast of new techniques and treatments.
Rest assured, I can care for your dog whether it be your pet, working or performance dog for well being, pain or injury from tall to small, puppy to senior.
