St Helens Chamber Member, Northwest Canine Hydrotherapy & Leisure Pool, celebrated its official launch with a grand opening ceremony at its state of the art facility on Inglenook Farm, Rainford. Local hero Andy Reid MBE performed the ribbon cutting honours in front of a crowd at Inglenook Farms monthly Artisan Market Event.
The business is the long held dream of owner Debbie Aspinall, whose own pet Labrador, Roxy benefited from hydrotherapy after invasive surgery to both her elbows.
Debbie says: “I saw first-hand how hydrotherapy helped in Roxy’s recovery from the surgery, and really helped with her rehabilitation, the results were truly amazing. Within a couple of sessions she was walking better and was soon back to her old self.”
Hydrotherapy is recognised as being beneficial for many dogs and is a treatment that is often referred by veterinarians to improve both physical and mental health. It is also beneficial as a leisure activity for both fit dogs and older, less mobile dogs.
Recognising the lack of hydrotherapy in the area, Debbie and husband Warren set out their plans to build a centre and their new business venture started to take shape.
The plans have come to fruition and now North West Canine Hydrotherapy & Leisure Pool has opened the doors to its impressive facility and is ready to welcome dog owners from far and wide.
Debbie says: “I’m really pleased with our hydrotherapy & leisure pool. The feedback from our first clients has been truly amazing and I’m looking forward to welcoming our future ventures. Our location here at Inglenook Farm is ideal. It’s really calm and relaxing for the dogs which helps them to get the best benefits from the centre. Inglenook Farm is a wonderful place for small businesses and a great community of traders who all support each other.”
