"I will be using this as an ongoing reference for my senior dog and those dogs that will enter into my life sooner or later. Excellent idea and excellent course!"

Hi, I’m Nathalie, an animal physio and canine fitness trainer
I am super passionate about dogs, and specifically, senior dogs will always have a soft spot in my heart. Why? Because I have been there and know what wonderful little souls they are! I love teaching senior dog owners how they can proactively help their beloved pets feel as comfortable as possible.
I am an Animal Physiotherapist, Canine Massage Therapist and Canine Fitness Trainer.
I treat senior dogs daily at my practice and have noticed firsthand how beneficial massages are for them. My clients often ask me how they can help their dog be more comfortable and mobile and how they could massage their dog to achieve this.
I have seen, time after time, how even some simple massage techniques can easily be learned and applied at home while still having a beneficial effect on dogs.
I am a Fear Free® Certified Professional. I strongly believe that we need to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety and stress in our dogs during any veterinary treatment we give them. The same goes for massage as this would negate the beneficial effects. I am a big believer in giving your dog a voice as reflected in my face-to-face business as well as my online courses.
I have been in your position with my dog and know how much massage has benefited him!
