INTRODUCING DARREN

I am the owner and company director of DKW Sports Therapy Limited which is located at Abshot Country Club. I have run my business for over 10 years and live in the Fareham area in Hampshire. My passion for wanting to become involved in K9 massage therapy has been driven by the love I have for animals and currently have 4 dogs of my own.

 

I completed the 2 year Clinical Canine Massage Diploma and trained with Natalie Lenton one of the world’s leading practitioners of Canine Massage at the Canine Massage Centre.

 

I am fully insured and am a Member of the Guild of Canine Massage Therapists which promotes high standards, safe practice and continuous professional development.

 

As part of my practice in the area of K9 massage I respect the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and Exemption Order 2015 by never working upon an animal without gaining prior Veterinary approval.

Through the practice of K9 massage I teach two different workshops in the local area:  the beginners guide to Canine Massage one day workshop & Canine Massage for the Agility & Sporting Dog one day workshop.

In addition to my love of animals, I am a graduate Sports Therapist with past experience working as part of a team of therapists in various physiotherapy clinics.

 

At my busy sports injury clinic I treat a wide range of human musculoskeletal injuries and work with a large range of clients of all ages and abilities. I have been privileged to work with, World and European tumbling gymnastics champions, common wealth athletes, para-Olympians and a Crufts Agility dog Champion.

 

My past hobbies included tumbling gymnastics and have competed for Great Britain on several occasions.

 

I understand the physical demands that are placed on our own bodies as well as our dogs. My current hobbies include dog walking and training my dogs. We attend dog agility training at the Fun Dog Agility Club in Fareham, and occasionally attend local competitions.

I enjoy attending regular Continued Professional Development (CPD) courses to extend my knowledge and to keep up with the latest research. I always dreamt of working with animals and I am now fulfilling my passion.
