Welcome to Dogs In Tune
East Sussex myotherapist and canine exercise physiologist, Teresa, regards the prevention and management of movement problems and disorders in dogs as an essential consideration when training. Continuing medical advances are increasing the longevity of dogs, although this often results in their having to cope with physically debilitating diseases, such as osteoarthritis for a longer period of time.
Dogs have learnt to live with us in domestic situations, but only now are we beginning to appreciate the importance of providing a puppy with an environment that allows for and promotes it’s proper physical development, if it is to have a long active life. Dogs do not complain when they have an ache or are stiff they simply ease the pain by changing the way they move. The effects of these compensatory actions can cause a change in joint action, increasing the possibilities of developing conditions such as DJD.
With the growth of dog sports, such as agility and fly ball, many dogs are now expected to perform as athletes, yet frequently they receive little after care or physical preparation apart from skills training. Often, training has a greater impact on the dog’s physical structure due to its repetitive nature than does actual competing.
Workshops and classes are designed to improve and support the physical development of puppies and dogs and also to provide a safe and stimulating environment for those dogs that have compromised movement. All training is reward based incorporating both learning theory and experience.
