I love what I do and take pride in offering hydrotherapy for your canine companion. I am happy to offer a swim for no fee on a weekly basis to both the Burnaby SPCA and the West Van SPCA.  We are thrilled to announce that 95% of them get adopted after two swims. It gives them more energy and a positive attitude when potential “parents” come to view them. The kind words in these testimonials are an example of everything experienced here at WaterWorkz Paw Spa whether your dog is swimming for weight control, floating to help with recovery after an injury or an operation or just to have some special time with their human.  Since we opened in 2009 we have helped so many dogs and their humans and logged many hours in the pool with our pool babies I could not begin to count the actually numbers…..I do know it warms my heart each and every day and am very thankful and proud of our spa, our team and what we do!

Hello Tanya VanderHammen,
I congratulate you with your opening of a first class Spa for dogs and availability to buy mobility carts. Dr.Sandhu from Sunshine Plaza Animal Hospital highly recommended one of my three Sheltie dogs, the youngest try it. Almost four months later, although high maintenance at home/in the pool she has come along way and with a lot of TLC, she is starting to walk with assistance. Thanks to all the support, prayers. In closing I would highly recommend your professional services with flexible hours.
Sincerely,
B.V.L.E. Jr.

Hey Tanya,
I think both Mick and I enjoyed it – though I think she was a little dazed and not certain what happened :). She made me walk around your entire parking lot with her before getting in the car – can’t say as I have seen her like that before – but maybe she was still warm and wanted to cool down, or simply didn’t know what to do with herself she was so relaxed :). Anyway looking forward to seeing you on Monday and we can see what goes on with her then :).

Good morning Tanya,
Thanks for your kindness, consideration and skill with Diesel. I just love your new business. I am most comfortable when I am able to observe. Both Mother and I enjoyed our session together with you on Tuesday. Thanks for your consideration to have us both sitting and watching. I was surprised to learn that when my Mother left for a few minutes Diesel stopped playing to see where she went. We now know that he keeps an eye out for her too. Watching Diesel learn to trust another individual in a water setting was terrific.

Diesel slept all afternoon once we arrived home. In fact he missed his 4:00 walk before dinner. A tired dog snoozing on his ottoman is a beautiful sight. Thanks again for your expertise with my dog. See you next on Tuesday December 1st at 11:00.
Have a great day.

Hi Tanya,
Just wanted to let you know that it seems like even after the first session, we have noticed a little bit of difference in Rusty already.
Tonight when he came home, first of all, he was hungry and wanted his dinner right away. Then, he hopped up on the couch (remember I told you it’s a good sign if he goes up on the couch meaning his hips are not sore) and took a nap. When we went out to get dinner, Rusty wanted to go along (which is another good sign that he is not sore)Throughout the evening when Rusty was moving around, getting up and lying down NOT A SINGLE GROAN came out of him!!!! That is huge (for me) since lately he has been groaning when he gets up or lies down and it just breaks my heart…..
He also seems to be al bit more alert and a bit more active tonight, then his typical after daycare night when he just lays around farting…ha ha
So either I really want the sessions to work or it is really great, but seems like just a short session today there are already some noticeable results!! Thanks again and looking forward to next Wednesday!!…………………….
