Gait and Posture Assessment

We know that health and pain can have a detrimental effect on behaviour, and can hinder learning. And, sometimes it's hard to figure out what's what! 

Perhaps you already have a feeling that something isn't quite right, and need some help to identify the what.

Maybe you are already working with a training and behaviour professional and would like to rule out pain and health issues as possible causes of whatever challenges your dog has.

Appointments for a gait and posture assessment are now available as a standalone appointment. 

If you would like an in-home appointment at your place, these are available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 

By observing a dog's gait and posture, we can identify: 

  • areas of weakness
  • asymmetries

- these can be indicative of underlying musculoskeletal or neurological issues,

- often contributing to discomfort, pain, and behaviour change.

    Following your appointment I will analyse the video and compile a report. This is not intended to be diagnostic in and of itself; it is an added tool to help your veterinary professional determine if there is anything that could be causing issues.
