On Tuesday 10th April 2018 the Agility Nationals will commence and run for six days.  I am very excited about spending almost an entire week with these highly trained agility athletes.  The extensive training regime and countless hours of dedication and practice culminates in this important annual event.

It’s exciting for spectators too, watching dogs negotiate serpentine manoeuvres, challenging and tighter courses, faster dogs, expert handlers, all whilst pulling it off in under 60 seconds.

Dogs are put through intense physiological and psychological stresses during these events and Canine Balance is committed to helping you and your dog achieve optimum performance, whilst remaining injury-free.

Whilst at the event, take the opportunity to visit Canine Balance at our stand.  There will be special offers to take advantage of and a chance to talk about all things dog-sport related in taking care of your athlete.  Our plan is to promote longevity in canine athletes and ensure your dog goes on to live actively and pain-free in their senior years.

We will be offering Accell Therapy Mat sessions by appointment only.  Accell Therapy is a unique treatment utilizing Cycloid Vibration Therapy (CVT).  A medically proven system that has been helping human conditions since 1949 and has shown excellent results in dogs.

Accell Therapy devices are one of the safest forms of physical therapy available. Utilising CVT, a three dimensional vibration therapy, Accell is clinically proven to work in four main areas…

  1. Increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage
  2. Relaxing muscle and increasing nerve muscle
  3. Increasing joint mobility, wound healing
  4. Relieve musculo-skeletal pain.

These devices penetrate an incredible 4ft of bone and 2ft of tissue to cellular level. Following treatment, benefits of using the device will continue to improve for up to 8 hours after the therapy session has finished.

Accell Therapy provides a simple, effective, and reliable treatment that can enhance the healing recovery in agility dogs and can be repeated daily.

Come and see our Accell Therapy consultant for more information on payment options to purchase one of these devices.  A totally non-aggressive and drug free everyday therapy for your agility dogs.

Can’t wait to see your there!
