I just wanted to write to let you know how much I enjoyed the one day workshop I attended last December on ‘Enhance the health & performance of your Canine Athlete’.
I found it a very good, interesting course and learnt a lot; the warm up exercise was particularly beneficial. My dog, Dodger competes in Simulated Coursing Events and canine massage is an important part of his preparation for these events. So far this year, he has had a very successful season, including winning the 32 dog stake championship at The Thame Country Show. This win has qualified him for a major final that is to be held later on in the year
