Nathalie returns to discuss senior pet fitness and its importance for our dogs as they get older and those suffering with osteoarthritis.
Nathalie graduated with Distinction in 2014 from The College of Animal Physiotherapy after which she got additional qualifications such as the Galen Myotherapy Diploma as well as Certified Canine Fitness Trainer. Nathalie is a Fear Free® Certified Professional. She is the founder and owner of Fitdog.lu, an animal physiotherapy and canine fitness practice in Luxembourg.
Like many in the field, Nathalie got into animal physiotherapy thanks to one special dog, her first dog, Jake. Jake made it to the wonderful age of 17 and is the inspiration behind her work and Fitdog.lu. As Jake was a geriatric dog, Nathalie has first-hand experience of the privileges but also the challenges and fears of having a senior dog. Senior dogs and the education of owners of senior dogs, have a central focus in her work. Nathalie teaches massage seminars, webinars and online courses for dog owners.
