Mid-season Myotherapy

Wot? i hear you cry.... Well although i have been trained to massage my dogs i like to get them 'tweaked' and assessed for 'areas to ease' by Julia Robertson from Galen Therapy. The treatments Julia gave Billy (The Noble Billy Ottaman) where definitely influential in his outstanding performance at crufts in 2004 & 2006. Naturally i want Chi to benefit, it makes him feel good and because every 100th of a second counts at the level he performs.
Here's a pic of Chi during his full assessment and treatment from Julia - no it's not a bad pic of him blinking he is actually gooey eyed because he is enjoying it so much!

Link to Galen Therapy web site on right hand side of page where you can find out more about learning how to enhance your dogs performance.

BTW: Myo = muscle, so myotherapy is muscle thearpy perfect for any athlete :)

Champ Finals at Thames


Breaking news........ Today we made it into the Championship Finals and gained the reserve ticket! Needless to say I am thrilled :) My aim was to get into the finals today to get some experience under our belts and we ended up running last having achieved two 3rd places in the qualifiers - the only team to gain 2 clear rounds. What an achievement.

Here we are receiving our prize from judge Gwyn Roberts.
NB Winners wear red!
