Functional Paws was founded by Sandra, who has a degree in Animal and Veterinary Biosciences along with a Diploma in Canine Myofunctional Therapy.
Growing up with dogs, she understood that one of life’s great joys was seeing a dog run and move freely without pain or discomfort. This fuelled her passion for canine mobility and musculoskeletal function, and she began to explore the possibilities of alternative and natural therapies for dogs recovering from surgery or living with chronic pain. She soon discovered a newfound love in canine myofunctional therapy and has never looked back since.
She regularly performs massages for dogs ranging from breeds, sizes and conditions. She also focuses on prioritising strengthening and conditioning exercises that help in increasing muscle endurance and body balance.
