Senior Dog Class

Senior Dog Classes with Tim Norris from Both Ends Of The Lead

 

 

There’s nothing quite like the excitement and joy of welcoming a new furry, wriggly bundle of mischief and mayhem into your family …  a puppy! It’s not long though before your thoughts turn to Puppy Classes … as the same cute, furry bundle of mischief and mayhem lives up to their name, leaving a trail of puppy chaos wherever they go!

For most people, Puppy Classes are a MUST-DO to train your little 4 legged family member … to listen to your commands and equally importantly, socialise with other dogs.

So why would you need to take your ageing dog to Senior Dog Classes as they get older?

They’ve already been through the basic obedience training (at the very least), and they’re well-socialised (well some of them, anyway ;)!).

Here’s the plain and simple ANSWER …

As our dogs age, they start to SLOW DOWN …

They walk LESS …

They take LONGER to recover from exercise …

Certain activities they used to find easy become much HARDER for them to do (eg. climbing stairs, getting in and out of the car) …

They’re NOT MOVING as WELL as they used to …

They become more prone to INJURY and DISEASE …

They might even be IN PAIN and DISCOMFORT (and you may not even be aware of it as dogs are generally great at masking pain) …

So I want you to take a careful look at your dog now … and see if you can pick up on any of these symptoms/signs I’ve mentioned …

At what age is a dog considered a Senior Dog?

At around 7 years of age.

For some larger breed dogs, they may be considered senior at 5 or 6 years of age …

Why? Because dogs AGE MUCH FASTER than people do … and the life span of a dog can depend on the size and breed. So this means that some larger breed dogs may not live to beyond 10 years of age.

Whilst this may seem grossly unfair, it might make you more aware of how much PRECIOUS TIME you have left with your special 4 legged member of your family …

And for this time you have left together, wouldn’t you want them to be as COMFORTABLE and as PAIN-FREE as possible?

We don’t have to accept that just because our dog is getting older … they have to suffer or be in pain.

After all, if that was YOU or ME … we’d do something about it, right?! Like go see a chiropractor, physiotherapist, acupuncturist …

Anything to give a new lease of life to those tired, aching limbs …

What can I do to help my Senior Dog be as comfortable and pain-free as possible (without resorting to pain meds)?

Plenty! This is what we teach our 1:1 clients every day!

NATURAL …

NON-INVASIVE …

NON-PHARMACEUTICALLY BASED …

… techniques that are …

SIMPLE …

PROVEN …

EASY TO LEARN … and

TAKES VERY LITTLE TIME TO DO!
