Dynamic Dog Assessment

The Dynamic Dog assessment process is a complete analysis of a dog to detect anomalies within the movement, posture and conformation and then presenting this information to the veterinarian so they can further investigate and provide treatment if required. 

As a Dynamic Dog practitioner, I am fully trained in canine bio-mechanics, static and dynamic critical analysis, vet report writing and have knowledge of how pain and discomfort can exacerbate and in some cases cause unwanted and often problematic behaviors in dogs.

Dynamic Dog assessments are appropriate for all dogs that have physical or behavioral issues, but especially dogs whose behavior has recently changed, dogs who are exhibiting behavioral issues that are puzzling and dogs that seem to have physical issues but are hard to assess in a veterinary clinic, for example, because the dog is anxious or fearful in a veterinary clinic setting.

What does a Dynamic Dog assessment include?

         90-minute Discovery call through Zoom interview to get a detailed picture of your dog’s behavior,

history, environment,

         relationships, daily routines and known physical health.

 

          After the interview, you will gather photo and videos of your dog following my “how to guide” and

          instructions

 

          An in-depth assessment involving analysis of your dog’s conformation, posture, gait and more will

          them be completed

 

          A follow-up Zoom meeting to discuss findings and recommendations

 

          A detailed written report will be given to your veterinarian with supporting photos and video.

          *An assisted vet visit with me accompanying you to the vet visit is available to those in the Central

          Kentucky area, if you so desire.

*A Dynamic Dog Assessment is recommended as a first step in all behavioral cases to rule out underlying pain as a contributor or cause of your dog's behavior issues.  If your dog has underlying pain, we need to address that before we can truly modify behavior.
