Certified Canine Massage Practioner
Certified Hydrotherapist







have been operating Backstretch Equine and Canine Massage since 2007, and I am loving my job helping dogs and horses feel better and move with more efficiency and greater ease!  My first horse lived to be nearly 35 years old, and I credit him with sending me on this career path.  As an avid agility player, both my senior teammate, and my youngster enjoy their massage and stretching sessions - it keeps my older girl loose and springy, and it helps to keep the kamikazee youngster from injuring herself (though she still tries!).  I am very excited to be teaming up with Pawsh Wellness to provide canine hydrotherapy and massage/bodywork - and thrilled that we are able to get our training from the best in the world - Greyfriars from the UK!

Hydrotherapist Assistant

It has always been a dream of mine to pursue a job with animals. I started as a sales associate at the Pawsh Dog on Taylor and I am now the K9 Hydrotherapist Assistant, which I am enjoying very much at The Pawsh Dog Wellness Centre. I have always grown up with animals, and they will always play a huge part in my life. I own a very sweet and free spirited American Paint horse named Eva. I also have a Sheherd cross from Manitoba German Shepherd Rescue and his name is Kevin. I enjoy spending most of my free time riding on the trails with Eva with Kevin following behind.
