About Us

Healthy Hounds Hydrotherapy and Massage is based in Dukinfield Cheshire and is run by  Lisa Holland. Prior to founding Healthy Hounds I spent 10 years involved in the running of one of the busiest canine hydrotherapy pools in the country. Swimming up to 30 dogs a day and tailoring each dogs experience to their needs gave me the knowledge and expertise to assist our canine clients no matter what their reason for swimming with us.
