Amanda Ainsworth and The Dogfather

bringing a variety of therapies and services to your dog

Amanda's Story

My name is Amanda and I am a qualified Massage Therapist working with The Dogfather. I have always had a love for animals and
have worked with them for over 20 years. It was my husky cross who ultimately led me to become a
message therapist. He suffered from hip dysplasia and I was recommended by a friend to see a massage
specialist. Following the treatment, I noticed instant results, he had a better quality of movement and a
better quality of life.

At the time, there were not many massage specialists around and after a change in circumstances, I
decided to retrain and completed over 800 hours of an externally accredited Clinical Canine Massage
Practitioner programme with the canine massage therapy centre. With plenty of one in one support
from qualified tutors, I was assured of correct technique application and I have a full understanding of
the physiological impacts of a massage on the dog.


Massage and Light Therapy

Clinical Massage can assist with a number of conditions and is an affordable treatment that not only assists with recovery, recuperation and rehabilitation but can also be an effective preventative.

Common results are a resolution or reduced lameness, relieved stiffness, reduced anxiety, able to use stairs or get out the car more easily and gave their “zest” for life back.
LED Light Therapy can help speed up the natural healing process.

Teeth Cleaning

The benefits of routine dental hygiene include reduced bad breath, better overall health, decreased pain, increased longevity, and reduced pet healthcare bills down the road.

Nail Clipping

Trimming your dog's nails is an important grooming task that helps her stay happy and healthy. When you don't clip your dog's nails, they can end up growing too long, which can cause problems.
