Shirley and Sparkles (Great Dane)
I took my 10 1/2 year old Great Dane, Sparkles, for a treatment with Tim after meeting him at a workshop the previous weekend. Being an older giant breed dog, Sparkles had been showing signs of her age with her mobility and sensitivity on her back when I ran my hand down it. I had nothing to lose by trying treatments other than medication to relieve this discomfort. When we arrived for the treatment session, Sparkles was alert and certainly not relaxed but not stressed at first, to my amazement she ended up asleep while Tim was treating her and explaining to me what he was doing and why. Results were not expected straight away, but true to form Sparkles shocked me by walking with more ease than she had for quite some time unless I gave her some anti inflammatory medication.
Sparkles has had two sessions with Tim and I would have to say she is like a new dog now, she looks younger, moves with so much more ease and is obviously much happier. I use a ramp to get Sparkles into the car (SUV) and her ability to get in now is much better than it had been. I was sceptical at first – would there be cracking of her bones and would Sparkles be happy or frightened and in more discomfort after treatment? Now I wish I had taken her sooner as the effects have been so good and Tim had her welfare as number one priority at all times. Another real benefit are the exercises and techniques Tim shows you to use at home and if you are unsure you are only an email away from clarification of any questions you may have.
Do I recommend Tim and Both Ends of the Lead? Yes I certainly do.
