We own between us 11 dogs, all of whom are relatively fit and healthy and all work doing agility, flyball, obedience and on shoots.

Chase (Australian Kelpie) had suffered an injury to her back due to falling from a dog walk on more than one occassion, which flared up again after her pups were born so we decided to take her for some treatment.

Sarah assessed Chase and quickly gained her trust (she is very much a one woman dog and will not usually do anything if anyone other than I ask), getting her to relax enough so that she could begin treatment.

Within the first week we noticed a marked difference in how Chase moved and held herself. Prior to physio, she would jump (26”) hunched over, almost bunny hop, now, she was beginning to properly stretch out and jump as she had been doing prior to becoming injured. When Chase went for her second visit, I booked Daisy in. For an eleven year old dog, Daisy is still very agile and still competes (and wins) at agility and flyball. We noticed a few years ago now that Daisy was often very stiff on her back right leg, vets diagnosed arthritis and prescribed her Metacam. Daisy has always been very highly strung and nervous so I honestly expected to have to fight with her to get her into a position where Sarah could treat her, but to my amazement, Sarah calmed her instantly and began her treatment.

Again, I had a set of exercises to do for Daisy which I made notes on and began. I have always massaged all of my dogs anyway as I know they enjoy it, it certainly relaxes Daisy but I quickly learnt that if I did as Sarah instructed then I got the benefit instantly as Daisy was not sore and hobbling first thing every morning and able to rule the roost with regard to playtime once more.

Sarah is a very dedicated lady, and treats both of our animals as though they are the most precious things in creation (to us, they are!!!!) and is well worth the money. Her advice has made a difference to all of our dogs, not just the two she has treated (we now know how to properly “stretch” them all prior to working).

We do love our dogs, but it takes a lot for us to part with cash “willy nilly” – and for us to do that speaks volumes as to her skill. She is a very nice lady, patiently explaining why she does everything that she does to your animals and showing you so you do not do anything untoward whilst you are treating in your home. She even took the time to reply to emails I sent in between treatments.

Lastly she signed both animals off her treatment after only a fairly short time, citing that we could maintain the improvements following her instructions at home. If she were unscrupulous in any way, surely she would have us back week in week out!!!!! Eileen and Michelle Ainsworth Rotherham
