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
Your senior pet has earned the privilege of being treated like a king/queen and living in the lap of luxury but is he/she truly enjoying it?

While at the STAAR Conference in April, Keri attended some fantastic classes about making life easier and happier for our older pets and we are very excited to be offering this program to the dogs of Niagara. Barbara attended some great classes, too, but we felt we should divide and conquer as there are so few continuing education opportunities in the field of veterinary rehabilitation. It is our commitment to all of you to stay on top of new developments and to share ideas from other therapists.

This program uses LASER to stimulate a comprehensive set of acupuncture points on a specific schedule to help improve your pet's comfort level, mobility and quality of life so that you can enjoy those golden years together. The treatments are combined with therapeutic exercises in our clinic and a home exercise program because it is most important to keep these special pups moving. So, if your furry friend is over 7 years old, slowing down, struggling with daily activities (e.g. getting up off the floor, climbing stairs, standing to eat or drink), stiff, sore and/or is known to have arthritis, then he/she is a great candidate for this program. Please contact the Centre for more details. We will also be offering a 12-week course of senior fitness classes starting in late summer/early fall so stay tuned for details on that.
