Paul Diggins Canine Massage and Training
About the Therapist
Hello, my name is Paul Diggins and I run Paul Diggins Canine Massage and Training. I am also a dog trainer and I live in Harpenden, Hertfordshire with my wife and two boxers.
I decided to enroll on the Canine Massage Practitioners Programme after I had seen the positive improvements in my older girl. She liked to do agility, but had gotten slower and slower, becoming an ‘old lady’ way before her time. After taking the beginners guide to canine massage and seeing good results, we had three sessions with a local therapist and saw even more progress. She started to enjoy agility and her walks much more.
Massage is not only for dogs with problems such as mine, but can also help:
- to speed up recovery after your dog has had an operation
- with post injury rehabilitation
- to alleviate both stress and anxiety
- relieve pain without the use of drugs
- to improve the performance of working dogs
£40 per session
