I am the owner of Fit4dogsuk and lead Hydrotherapist here. I love having puppy cuddles and seeing the amazing progress from our rehabilitation clients. Fit4dogs was always a dream so it is amazing to see it grow into the business it is today, and I am so proud of the achievements we have all made in such a short amount of time.

Born and living in Aukland, New Zealand I worked in the leisure industry before moving to the UK with my husband Mike and two children in 2012. I attended Auckland University where I gained my Sports Science Diploma, which lead me onto teaching children how to swim. It was during this time I realised my true passion was to work within health care for dogs and how needed a therapy centre is. I decided to retrain as a Canine Hydrotherapist and then embarked in the process of building Fit4dogsuk in Beverley with Mike.

In our family, we have a Cockapoo x Border collie who is full of beans and three Runner ducks who have a 5-star summer house to sleep in, but find it much more entertaining watching me struggle to bring them in for the night before settling down on their garden pond.

For the last two years, I have worked on building a Hydrotherapy Centre and team which clients and owners feel comfortable visiting - I believe this is important for our clients to progress physically and mentally and reach their individual goal.

I look forward to joining you and your dog on your path to healthy and happy living.
