Gillian Barrett, Grad.Dip.Phys, ACPAT Cat A, FP-MT

Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in Animal Physiotherapy

I have always lived with dogs and now own 5 - 2 Labradors and 3 Papillons

I have been competing in Dog Agility since 1997 and  reached Grade 6 with my German Shepherd. She continued to compete in agility at full height until she was over 11 years old and continued in veteran classes until she was 12½.

I now compete with the 2 Labradors who are both Grade 5. The Papillons were Grade 5 and Grade 6 but only one is still competing in veteran classes age 12

The black Labrador has also won into Novice in both Heelwork to Music and Freestyle, competed in Obedience and in 2014 and 2015 won a Gundog Scurry competition. In 2017 the Labradors were 2nd and 3rd in the BASC Gundog Scurry at Rhug Country Fair

I worked as a Chartered Physiotherapist in the NHS for 30 years until 2006 working mainly in community hospitals which involved treating a very varied range of conditions. I also spent some years working with children. I had a special interest in wound healing and completed a post-graduate diploma in tissue viability. 

I completed further training and qualified as an Animal Physiotherapist in 2002. I now specialise in treating animals - mainly dogs

I am also a FitPaws Master Trainer, qualifying on the first course held in the UK and qualified as a Certified Canine Fitness Trainer in 2018

I have lived in Wales since 1981 and have learnt Welsh.
