K9 Fitness Works Story
I have learned exercise, stretching, and nutrition build a foundation for a healthy dog through my work the last 5 years as a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner. I and the team of veterinarians helped dogs recover from knee, spine, and nerve injuries to play ball again. I also use my health lessons from chronic infection with West Nile Virus to relate to their injuries for a fitness plan. I observe your dog’s individual personalities and behaviors to tailor programs that work for their specific needs. Together we can reach your Pawer Pup’s health goals for a happier long life with you
Since 2007 infection with the mosquito born West Nile Virus, I have been learning to build my own strength, repair my nervous system, and work on balance. This experience has taught me a health intuition to connect with dogs that are experiencing the same challenges due to injury, age, or disease. We walk through the journey together.
