In this chat we welcome the lovely Rachel Jackson, who will be sharing her passion and knowledge on so many aspects of the ‘whole dog’. Rachel will be talking about their physiology, the different types of pain that dogs feel and how this will affect their behaviour including how comfortable they are with contact/touch from us and what we can do to help them.
Rachel will also be sharing about her work as a TTouch instructor and drawing from her many years as a Veterinary Physiotherapist. This will have loads for everyone – carer and professional. Going to be a good one ! I hope you can come and join us.
BIO:
Rachel lives in the North West of England with her husband, a lurcher and two greyhounds. Rachel was initially a primary school teacher which she really enjoyed. When first married, nearly 26 years ago, Rachel and Jay rescued their first dog, a wonderful but fearful lurcher called Fionn, he started Rachel’s journey along the learning path she has been on since and continues now.
Rachel is a Tellington TTouch Instructor and loves working one to one with clients, helping them understand their dog’s behaviour and needs better. She also delivers one-three day workshops and trains new practitioners. TTouch is at the centre of all her interactions with all species as it is so animal centred.
As a university qualified and insured Veterinary Physiotherapist, she provides animal physiotherapy services to both large and small animals in her clinic in Cheshire. In this role she has fostered two greyhounds who had been injured in their last race to rehabilitate them and support them in being ready to go into their forever homes.
In addition to the above, Rachel is a dog trainer with over 20 years’ experience, holding qualifications from Sheila Harper Canine Centre, where she learnt so much about dog behaviour.
All the dogs Rachel has shared the lives and love with have taught her so much and have also guided her learning and through them found other like minded professionals to help them physically and emotionally.
Rachel has always been intrigued and by Acupuncture and Acupressure and studied Canine Acupressure with Tallgrass Institute and qualified as a Practitioner for dogs in 2009. In addition, I studied with Caroline Ingraham and has a diploma in Canine Applied Zoopharmacognosy from Caroline.
Over the past twenty four years Rachel and Jay has fostered many dogs, predominantly sighthounds of variety of sizes, shapes and ages. She feels passionately that every dog should have the opportunity to live their best life.
