Swimming is an amazing form of exercise!  While the water buoyancy creates nonweight bearing exercise it simultaneously creates greater resistance for a harder workout. Swimming is one of the few exercises that uses all the muscles of the body. The warm water penetrates and relaxes the muscles allowing them to stretch.  Whether your dog is cross training or rebuilding strength and muscle, swimming is an excellent choice.

Stacey Gong

CCFT, CCMT, CCWFP, FMT, Reiki Level 2

Stacey is s a California native who has had a life-long love affair with animals.  After earning a degree in Architecture from USC, she spent my first two decades working for Advent Resources, a company that specializes in Finance and Information software for car dealerships. 

A few years ago, she brought Tommy, her 16-year-old keeshond (that completely owned my heart), to Earlene for water therapy to help with his arthritis.   It was amazing how much better he felt and how much better he was able to move after each swim session.  She was also taking my other two Keeshonds, Kodi and Kasee, to Earlene's Pup Core-Pro classes to keep them fit for agility, help with their self-confidence and improve my relationship with them. 

An off-hand comment from Earlene stating that she was getting so busy that she really hoped to find someone to help her out led her to her second job and second career helping animals.  She has always been ready and willing to learn everything she could to help her dogs live their best lives.  Earlene was generous enough with her time and was willing to teach her how to care for and swim dogs in the pool.

certification in Animal Reiki (Reiki level 2)

certification as a Fitpaws Master Trainer.

Stacey considers herself extremely lucky and fortunate to be able to help the animals that come to us live their best, pain-free life.
