Canine Catering

Christchurch’s only certified canine massage therapist…with food therapy consults worldwide!

I’ve been a ‘dog person’ all my life and I am a passionate supporter of holistic health.  Are you looking for cooperative and complementary options to keep your dog healthy, happy and pain free?   You’ve come to the right place.

I love working with dogs of all kinds and many of my clientele are senior dogs needing support to retain quality of life. Exercise and stretching programmes are often part of my treatment plans. I employ massage, acupressure and laser therapies alongside nutrition and lifestyle advice to offer your dog a service that caters to their well-being.

Where appropriate, I will suggest homeopathic, bach flower, dietary supplements and other products that may help your dog overcome illness, injury and emotional issues.  It is important to remember, however, that complementary therapies are not a replacement to traditional veterinary care and my clients must certify that their dog is under the regular care of a veterinarian.

Our dog treats are suitable for dogs of all ages but they not marketed as a complete diet/dog food. Treats should make up a maximum of 10% of a dog’s daily intake of calories.

Our treats are made using first quality ingredients including SPCA approved eggs and no preservatives. We will not use peanut butter that is made in China.

We have special products like doggy birthday cakes that we can make to order and we always offer special packaging for Christmas. Most of all, I will work with owners, breeders and vets to develop recipes that meet the needs of dogs with special diets and preferences. No other company making dog treats in New Zealand offers this option. 

We are the original niche baker of dog treats (accept no imitations)!

Enjoy your visit to this site.  I look forward to helping you give your dog the best quality of life possible.
