Sandra’s Story

Chito (my pooch in the photo) has been my inspiration and support throughout and Paws4Paws would not exist without him. He was the one giving me a nudge to follow my passion and redirect my path from being an academic (anthropologist) to helping dogs live a longer and happier life. And he is living proof! He is 12 years old and despite suffering from spondylosis and lumbosacral disease he is in fantastic condition. We have done a lot of rehabilitative strengthening work as well as remedial massage and myofascial pain release over the past 6 years and the results are amazing.

I became a Canine Myotherapist in 2015 and have done a lot of professional development in canine rehabilitation since. I am a lifelong learner and am currently embarking on my Cert IV in Vet Nursing which will then allow me to study a postgraduate program in Canine Rehabilitation at the University of Tennessee. These are my long term plans but in the meantime I feel blessed that I have been able to help dogs live a longer and happier life for 7 years now.

I love every dog as if they were my own. Nothing gets me up in the morning like knowing I will help another dog feel better today!

Lisa Whight

Canine Myotherapist

Lisa has always had dogs in her life and is currently the mum of two Hungarian Vizslas. After a major accident with one of her dogs over 12 years ago she became aware of the importance of canine rehabilitation and so her passion began to help dogs lead a longer, healthier and happier life. She completed her Canine Myofunctional Therapy degree with the National College of Traditional Medicine (NCTM) 10 years ago and joined Paws4Paws in 2020. Our clients and their pups absolutely love her and her empathetic nature, and she has been a great addition to the team.
