Sunday 27th of November, Leonberger walk in Beernem

Meus Amicus Harko, Angel Löwe Von Spittergrund and Jarko (Jamy) Lions from D’Es went for a walk in Beernem, with all their little friends of the Leonberger Club. It was raining a bit, but this could not damage the fun.
It was also very nice in the restaurant “In den Achternoene” where the food was subject to a profound inspection by our dogs.
And it was approved!
And last but not least, also the good Saint Nicolas came to visit us and gave a little present to all dogs who behaved well.

Soon, Meus Amicus Harko TV star.

Wednesday 9th of November Harko could play in a TV commercial.

Like for a real star there is expected to have a lot of patience… very long waiting times…

First there was a take in the studio, where Harko had to give a little kiss to the model.

Then there were some takes in the parc, where Harko had to sniff around a female Golden Retriever.

Harko liked doing that very much! This role was perfect for him!

Afterwards he had to pose for the family picture.

The director was very satisfied about the performing talent of Harko.

He was definitely the star of the day!

Hydro Lions From D'Es, hydrotherapie


Zwemmen met je hond is gewoon leuk maar het is ook heel gezond. Mensen komen naar ons hydrotherapiecenter met honden die last hebben van heupdysplasie, elleboogdysplasie, gescheurde ligamenten, artrose, rugproblemen, spierblessures of overgewicht. Met hydrotherapie kan je je hond op verschillende manieren helpen. De fysieke inspanning op zich is goed voor de gezondheid van je hond, zorgt voor een betere ontwikkeling van de spiermassa en is goed voor de behandeling van pijn bij bv. artrose.

Ook gezonde, opgroeiende honden hebben baat bij hydrotherapie. Het bevordert een evenwichtige opbouw van spieren en gewrichten. Bij oudere honden onderhoudt hydrotherapie de spiermassa zonder zware inspanning en overbelasting. Honden zwemmen van nature... maar niet allemaal! 

Bij sommige rassen is "leren zwemmen" nodig. Hydrotherapie is trouwens veel meer dan zwemmen alleen. Het zorgt voor een perfect hondenleven: niet alleen fysiek maar ook mentaal. Het is ideaal voor een goede socialisatie en trouwens perfect tegen stress bij je hond.

Wij beschikken over een hydrotherapiebak met een vlakke loopband en een hydrotherapiebak met een loopband met een hellingsgraad van 8 tot 30 graden.

De hydrotherapie op zich bestaat uit doelgerichte oefeningen die op een zachte manier in water worden uitgevoerd om op die manier terug spiermassa op te bouwen. Door de beweging in water wordt de aanmaak van gewrichtsvocht gestimuleerd zodat er als het ware een olie-achtige film rond de gewrichten wordt gelegd. De bloedsomloop van je hond wordt ook gestimuleerd door de intensiteit van de oefeningen en de warmte van het water.

Eén hydrotherapiesessie duurt een half uur.

De aanwezigheid van het baasje is heel belangrijk (zeker de eerste keren) om je hond gerust te stellen en hem te stimuleren om de oefeningen op de loopband in het water te doen.

Per beurt betaalt u slechts 30 euro.
