OFFICIAL CLUB ADVENTURE: Snout to Tail™ Assessment

ABOUT THE EVENT:
For this Official Club Adventure, we are headed to Concord with Canine Strong for a hike, swim, and a Snout to Tail™ Assessment of your dog.

Join us for a 3 mile hike along the Jim Hill Riverwalk with beautiful views of the Contoocook River. Before the end of the hike, we will stop at the beach along the river to give the dogs a dip in the cool waters. After, we will learn about Snout to Tail™ Assessments and how to perform on our dogs with certified canine fitness trainer April Begosh.

A Snout-To-Tail™ assessment is a systematic and deliberate method for evaluating and determining the current status of your pet’s overall health. This is also a valuable bonding experience for you and your pet. By knowing what is “normal” for your pet, you will be able to quickly recognize what is “not normal.” Early detection means early intervention.

At this adventure, participants will:

  • Enjoy physical and mental enrichment with other dog lovers
  • Receive a mini guide with step by step instructions for the Snout-To-Tail™ assessment and documentation sheets
  • Learn how to conduct a physical Snout-To-Tail™ assessment
  • Discover how to document their findings
  • Learn what is considered “normal” for the vital measurements of breathing, heartrate, and mucous membrane color
  • Find out how to use this assessment to get their dog on the road to wellness

ABOUT APRIL BEGOSH:
April has been a licensed massage therapist since 1995. While she loves working with her human clients, she has always felt a draw towards and a connection with animals. In 2009, April decided to combine her passions and begin working with animals professionally. She opened her business, Healthy Pets NH with the aim of providing pet owners with training and education in emergency and wellness care for pets. Her goal was to help pet owners to create safer, healthier and happier lifestyles for their pets.

April is certified through Pet Tech which is the only international company that exists exclusively to provide training in CPR, First Aid and care for pets to pet owners and pet professionals. It was not long before April realized that her true passion was in the prevention and improvement of mobility issues experienced by animals.

In 2016, April became a Fit Paws Master Trainer and earned her title as a Certified Canine Fitness Trainer. Since then she has been designing strength and conditioning programs to support dogs with mobility issues and physical challenges.

In 2021, she joined forces with Renee DeSimone, a Certified Canine Rehab Professional and opened Canine Strong, a rehab and wellness facility in Concord, NH.
