Welcome to the Niagara Canine Conditioning Centre
“The Centre” is the first and only full service rehab-only facility for pets in the Niagara Peninsula.

Dogs and cats alike will benefit from the expertise and collaboration of therapists from both sides of the field and a facility which enables them to exercise year-round.
Our Mission
We are committed to helping you enjoy your pets for as long as possible by keeping them fit and active. When sick or injured, we will work with you to get your pet back to doing the things you love to do together as quickly as possible. Consider us a part of your pet’s “Quality of Life Care Team”.
What is Rehabilitation?
Rehabilitation or Physiotherapy, as we know it in human medicine, has been around since the early 1900’s. It has only recently become part of animal care and is, perhaps, one of the fastest growing disciplines in veterinary medicine. When your pet has an injury, surgery or a neurological condition which affects its ability to function, rehabilitation is essential for recovery and return to normal activities. Rehabilitation practices can also be applied to the fitness and conditioning of athletic/working/show dogs to improve stance, stamina and performance.
What’s New

COVID-19 UPDATE
As some restrictions have been lifted, we want to share our plans with you as we return to our new “business as usual”. We have been and will continue to follow the guidelines put forth by the province. As we are providers of alternative pet care, we also adhere to the recommendations and protocols provided by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO) and the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA). With the announcement that veterinarians can return to providing full services, we are excited to be able to offer our full range of services as well, WITH SOME EXCEPTIONS. Veterinarians are still being told to keep clients outside of their clinics and we will continue to do the same. We know that it is hot out and we’re sorry, but it’s important that we stick with this policy. We are working on installing safety measures so that when we are allowed to let people into the building, everyone will feel safe. For those of you who have been concerned about your dog’s ability to cope with you outside the building, we have been pleasantly surprised and are extremely proud of the dogs and cats we’ve been seeing, especially the very nervous ones, as they have all done very well.

Our gym is now open so that our rehab patients can do their therapeutic exercises after receiving their treatments. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO WELCOME BACK OUR FITNESS PATIENTS. If your dog was coming in for conditioning and/or weight loss only, please contact us to schedule an appointment. We are aware that we sometimes do need owners in the room to motivate a dog to do an exercise. If we are unable to get your dog to work for us without you, please be assured that you will not be charged for the appointment and we will be sure to contact you as soon as we are able to let you come into the building. The pool is open for therapy patients only. Unfortunately, we do feel that it is necessary to have owners present for our recreational swimmers. Please, be patient. The pool room is a difficult place to keep sanitized and we are working on solutions to make sure that it is a safe space for everyone. EFFECTIVE JUNE 1ST, WE WILL BE OPEN FROM 9-1 ON MONDAYS AND FRIDAYS (in addition to 9-7 on Tuesdays and Thursdays).

When we are allowed to have clients in the building, we will do so slowly, starting with new patients, then likely the rec swimmers. You will notice some changes inside as we try to maintain safe distances between people and keep all touchable surfaces clean. PPE and hand sanitizer will be available for anyone who needs it. Only 1 person will be allowed in with each pet to minimize the number of people in the building at one time and appointments will be staggered as best we can to avoid bottlenecks at the front desk. Hours will be increased as needed to accommodate these protocols. Massage therapy remains unavailable until Carlea gets the go ahead from her governing college. WE DO NOT HAVE A TIMELINE FOR ANY OF THIS. Stay tuned for updates.
