Tony and Nikki with Bear

Post date: May 31, 2013 7:58:9 AM

Bear is our 13 month old Newfoundland dog, we got him from the breeder at 8 weeks and quickly realised that he was having problems standing, we instantly thought the worse and contacted the vet who gave us all the advice he could, we resigned ourselves that our dog probably had hip dysplasia. After lots of internet searching and research we found HandOnHounds and spoke to Susan, her advice was first rate and we quickly returned to the vets and asked them for a recommendation, the practice knew of Susan and had used her skills before, they stated that they did not know if it would do any good for a dog so young but we had nothing to lose by trying and so we went ahead with the treatment. After 9 months of treatment we now have a very strong lively beautiful puppy that we wished for. Susan was fantastic with Bear and we feel we would not have got him to where he is today without her. Her knowledge is second to none and she makes the sessions great fun, Bear used to make such a fuss of her and loved the water tank. The vets were really impressed with the speed and amount of progress made from the puppy that could hardly stand.

Thank you so very very much for sorting out our Bear, we will always be indebted to you, I could not recommend your services highly enough.
