Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy
The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy (ACPAT) is a Clinical Interest Group of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and represents the interests of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy. Animals, like people, respond to physiotherapy. The purpose of physiotherapy is to restore and maintain mobility, function, independence and performance. ACPAT members are fully qualified Chartered Physiotherapists (MCSP's) who have also trained in physiotherapy and rehabilitation for animals.

Hydrotherapy is a fantastic way to either provide therapeutic treatment for your dog or simply some intense exercise. Dogs often tolerate certain treatments better when in the pool and because of the resistance of the water they can have an intense (and fun!) exercise session in less than 30 minutes!
SCH is owned and managed by Anne-Michele and Geoff Bacon.
They have been dog owners for many years having owned Great Danes and now more recently German Shepherds.
They are both qualified in Canine Hydrotherapy including 'Aquatic Treadmill' and are members of the Canine Hydrotherapy Association.
Having both been Registered General Nurses they are experienced in pre/post op care and medical/surgical procedures (albeit in humans).
Kim is a fully qualified Canine Behaviourist , Training Specialist, and Agility Trainer. She covers Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire. I cannot recommend her highly enough as I have experienced (and had great success with) her methods first hand on both a behaviourist and training point of view with my two Springer Spaniels.
