Dog water therapy: assisting your pups in the water

How does it work?
For our hydrotherapy service, we safely secure your pup into a specially designed harness and life jacket, before slowly and gently lowering them into the dog water therapy pool.

To make sure our furry friends are comfortable, we adjust the water heat and strength of the current to each individual dog. And of course, monitor the happiness and well-being of your pup during the whole process.
