'How to Build a Puppy... Into a Healthy Adult Dog' book

Julia's latest book explores how environment, exercise and activity habits have a deep, ongoing effect on dogs. How to Build a Puppy explores ways in which positive change can be integrated easily into our normal lives. The book culminates into a full programme called the Galen Myotherapy Puppy Physical Development Programme©.

Foyles review:

'Should be standard reading for all dog owners, dog instructors, dog behaviour consultants, dog shelters, veterinarians students, veterinarians, and all other education's and organisations that have to do with dogs in our society'.

TILLY TALKS

Bringing a new puppy into your home is incredibly rewarding, but like any new arrival presents a number of challenges. In our Tilly Talks, Julia Robertson - founder of Galen Myotherapy - talks to Cushla Lamen (Galen Myotherapist) and experienced Puppy School tutor about various aspects to consider. And of course, the star of the show is Tilly, who came to us in 2020. 

Subjects include creating the right environment, integration with existing dogs, the specific requirements of puppy walking and much much more. 

There's a lot of information here which is useful for all dog owners, so it's well worth a watch, even if you don't have a new puppy at this current time.
