Standard Our standard programme is the entrance point for most dogs into the Dog Spa.

During this programme we introduce the dogs to swimming and the use of the pool and begin to help them to use their muscles and mobilise joints etc.

This programme provides us with some clear data about your dog and how he will respond to treatment within the Spa.

The picture here is of Manon a hard working Bull Terrier endeavouring to achieve full fitness - she started with us on the standard programme and is doing really well.

Standard Plus This progression from the standard programme sees us introduce the benefits of the Spa Bath Jacuzzi system to further stimulate your dog's responses to treatment and for a luxurious relaxing phase between treatments.

The Jacuzzi can be used for pain relief - pain relief that can result in reduction of medication. Pain relief often alters the characteristic of a dog from short tempered and unhappy to relaxed with increased ability to be active and happy.

The Jacuzzi also provides total massage. It is especially effective for injured and particularly arthritic dogs. We keep the temperature at 38 degrees. The unit's adjustable floor accommodates all breeds.

Swim For Fun Many dogs love swimming!! we provide a safe comfortable environment within which your dog can swim for fun and you can be assured that he will not get into difficulties or over stretch himself.

Dogs normally progress to this programme after starting with us on one of our other programmes.

The benefits are there for all to see and it quickly becomes obvious how much the dogs love swimming with us!! As the dogs become more able they can work harder to improve aerobic levels and general strength and fitness at a pace that suits them.

Special Needs Our Special Needs programmes are individually tailored to meet the needs of dogs who have been referred to us by veterinary specialists.

We currently run programmes for dogs with paraplegia and tetraplegia and have witnessed some amazing results from our clients.

Dogs on our special needs programmes don't just physically improve their whole well being improves and it has been very special for us to see the improvement in quality of life for some of the dogs we work with on a regular basis.

Another regular on our special needs programme is Dino - a Doberman Pinscher. Dino suffered a cranial cruciate injury.

After initial surgery he was put on a very conservative exercise regime with only two 10 minute sessions daily. As a result, Dino became a very frustrated and anxious dog.

To make matters worse he ruptured the repair of the first surgery and had to have surgery repeated.

After the second surgery, his muscle diminished, tone became flaccid and his behaviour became difficult to manage. Eventually he was referred to the Dog Spa and we created a Special Needs programme for him.

He has been swimming at the Dog Spa since August 25th. His swims all take place with close support i.e. one of our team gets into the water with him to help him build confidence and make him feel at ease. In the pool Dino suffers from poor buoyancy and so needs 2 floats to support him.

Senior Citizens Our tailor designed Senior Citizen programmes cater for the older dogs among our clientele who will benefit from the gentle exercise and stimulation of the swimming pool and the relaxing effects of the Spa Bath Jacuzzi.

Due to the extreme variations in requirements of older dogs visiting the Spa all of our Senior citizen programmes are carefully and individually designed.

Lifestyle Sadly many dogs today suffer detrimental effects because of their lifestyle.

Problems such as obesity need to be addressed alongside the dietary and other lifestyle recommendations of your veterinary surgeon.

However, The Dog Spa can help! we can offer a programme of exercise to complement your vet's advice that will help your dog back on the road toward a fitter, more active and healthy lifestyle.
