J BARKER: RCH, Mirvap
Founder and Lead Hydrotherapist
My name is Jo,
I have many years of experience in horses and dogs having worked with police horses and dogs, competed in agility and cani cross with my rescue dogs.
Since developing spinal and joint issues myself I developed an interest in hydrotherapy and discovered that the one place I was not in pain was in the pool. Since having to give up my passion for horses due to my health I turned my attention fully to dogs and have never looked back.
I have a particular interest in working with animals with joint issues.
I am a level 3 qualified hydrotherapist inc:
Canine anatomy and Physiology
Canine first aid
Administration of canine hydrotherapy
Canine treadmill practice
