“One day my trusted companion, my best friend, my brother we will meet again… But not yet. There is yet one MISSION to complete…”
Operating as a K9 team honoured us with a deep understanding of the canine psyche. Whilst receiving treatment and rehabilitation for our own injuries, we realized something truly significant which would change the course of our lives:
The physical and emotional needs of injured humans and injured dogs are almost identical.
Regarding physical and mental state, we asked:
“If rehabilitation through excercise can lead us onto better and more fulfilling lives: is it the same for dogs?”
Furthermore, hydrotherapy was pivotal in our rehabilitation and after more soul searching and research:
“Can Hydrotherapy also work for injured dogs?”
We put this into practice and developed the first progressive hydrotherapy and fitness program of its kind within the military. The results were astounding.
Health and wellness coaches help people develop individualised strategies for improving their health, exercise, eating and emotional well-being. Effectively, Pawseidon aim to provide for dogs what Health or Wellness coaches provide for people.
We are absolutely committed to the five animal welfare domains and in particular:
Your dog may have experienced severe physical and mental trauma; be an international athlete or; a loving companion. However, we promote the physical and mental Health of all dogs. At Pawseidon, we don’t dwell on the ‘what is’: we focus on the ‘what can be’…
Through Hydrotherapy and other non-invasive therapies; we provide sound rehabilitation, promote fitness and stimulate mental wellbeing. Once established, our behavioural training wing will promote good behaviour allowing owners and their dogs a chance to strengthen that true and unbreakable connection.
Pawseidon believe in the 1%s. Regardless of the odds: EVERY dog deserves the chance of a better life… so join us.
In the line of duty, Zero was called to rest. As for Max, the physical and mental pain of injury proved too much for him. Sharing Max’s enduring battle with injury equipped us with the power of hindsight, experience and compassion.
To alleviate suffering and promote the wellbeing of canines.
