Splish, splash! What a great day for a swim in the warm hydro Pool! It was our PLEASURE to take your dog for a lesson of swimming with the Noahs Crossing Vet team.
Hydrotherapy is not just fun it comes with numerous benefits such as low impact exercise for muscles and joint, helps build on the dogs confidence and fitness, it is a great exposure experience and helps to build on your dogs swimming style and confidence with water.
After their swim you may find they will either be full of energy with a second boost of adrenaline or they will be out like a light snoozing off today's accomplishments. Either way, they deserve it!
Please find below some quick notes given by the qualified Hydro-therapist and a note from our team how the dog was during their time with us.

A word from us
Oh Chase was a nervy boy at first! After plenty of cuddles and reassurance he began to relax a bit more and started to grasp the concept of swimming and had a few really good strokes! He became confident in jumping off the pod on his own, just needs more practice to help his coordination! We like to say he has a unique swimming style.
A word from Noah's
Chase was very nervous in the water to begin with and produced massive splashes, not knowing what to do. He was quite stiff and shaking lots. As the session progressed Chase’s coordination got better and he swam more seamlessly, but he definitely needs more work so another session is recommended!
