What Paws to Consider clients say

Highly recommend Shirlene... Her understanding of performance dogs and their needs as well as senior dogs is unique.. Her skillful insights, followed on with remedial measures and recommendations are unprecedented in my experience with other canine health professionals!  My dogs feel better after a session.

Janice Crooks - Harvie, Astro, Brooke and Merlin

I would highly recommend Shirlene as she is extremely thorough and sensitive to the dogs and owners needs.  She is an excellent massage therapist who really cares for her patients.  Her caring nature and dedication to animals is outstanding.

Gayle Baxter - Skipper, Koda, Thunda and Vada

I would just like to thank Shirlene for her hands on work this morning with my young English Springer.  He is rather exuberant and full of life, to see him relax and enjoy the hands on work that Shirlene gave was wonderful.  He was relaxed and appeared to enjoy the massage.

Leonie Kelleher - Ferdi.

Shirlene is a god send - in her we have found someone we feel we can trust completely to look after our pets and our home.  Thank you Shirlene!

Richard and Amy Wise - Chester.

I loved having new ideas for sequences and getting the opportunity to get Wally into some challenges.  I needed help to make sense of how to distance handle and after the session I have a much clearer idea.  I thought I might be a bit behind everyone else but felt welcome and saw that we were doing pretty well.

Debbie Conway - Wally.
