Presentation this week: Sarah Bunce of Omnidogs

The family firm is going from strength to strength with two two-acre enclosed private fields including double gate system in Hemingford Abbots for dog exercising, classes and agility. Private lessons for one to ones are available as well as puppy classes, foundation classes, agility and canine conditioning for those dogs who need strength building and help with co-ordination after illness or an injury.

Twins Rachel and Cameron have both gained qualifications to deliver aspects of health and wellness in dogs. Rachel works with pets in Omnidog’s small animal hydrotherapy pool in St Ives which helps them with their rehabilitation after an operation, strengthen their muscles, or just to have some good all-round fun. For troubled dogs, Behaviour Modification is offered. Cameron is now qualified as a dog behaviouralist. Sarah commented that it is wonderful to see dogs overcome fears through behavioural sessions.

Omnidogs will call to collect your pets for exercising in a van with lockable crates. They have a great time on the two-acre fields and are returned home refreshed, exhausted and happy!
