:: CHOICE LED TREATMENT
It’s vital for the dog being treated that they feel they have a ‘choice’ in the treatment. We never use forced restraint, and treatment will always take place on the floor or on a low level, which is where a dog is most comfortable. The practice of ‘choice’ is one that has now become main-stream with many top trainers and behaviourists using the term.
:: OWNER EMPOWERMENT
We recognise that when you dog is struggling owners want to help, and often it is difficult to become involved in their treatment. However, we always include the owners in their dog’s treatment plan, imparting techniques that are safe to use, along with exercise planning and ‘environment’ management.
:: HIGH LEVEL OF SPECIALIST KNOWLEDGE AND TRAINING
All Galen Canine Myotherapists®*are qualified to an exceptional level, and this anatomy and physiology learning is directed at functional application. They understand the dog’s anatomy in terms of movement, how the dog’s body works and how stress can be reflected through behaviour. This knowledge is then directed into a ‘dog centric’ application of choice-led treatment.
