Your Hosts

Hannah Johnson & Charlotte Jarman

Who are we?
Hi everyone! My name is Hannah, and I am a qualified small animal hydrotherapist. I started working with Woozelbears in 2012 as their first ever apprentice, fresh out of studying animal care at college. I quickly became Qualified as a Hydrotherapist, after pestering poor Charlotte to get me through the qualifications as I was so eager to learn. In my time working as a hydrotherapist I had to go through hours of CPD (continual professional development), and this included seminars and individual research. I have always been very passionate about education in prevention rather than just cure alone because for me I would rather the animals were never in pain in the first place if we can avoid it! And that’s where my passion really started to shine through. I wanted to be able to educate, not only sporting and working dog owners but also pet dog owners too! Over time I became Senior Hydrotherapist & centre manager at Woozelbears in Witney, and also trained in the use of the FitFurLife Gait Analysis Treadmill. But then sadly had a skin problem which the chlorine exacerbated and after working for 2 years with a dermatologist is made my health so bad that I had to stop. I still work with Woozelbears behind the scenes, but I always missed the work so much, which is when I decided to become a K9 PT. I felt like this would lead me back into the world of prevention rather than cure, allowing me to work with the dogs who haven’t yet had an injury to try and help build their fitness up so that the chance of injury is reduced as much as possible. I am now also studying to qualify as a Pro Dog Trainer because I feel like in the field of rehabilitation and canine fitness, we need to have a good level of understanding of behaviour as there are so many places in which the two realms cross over. I have been training in agility with my dogs for fun for years, but recently have started to take it more seriously and want to start competing now as well!
This all has all led me to where I am now, doing my absolute utmost to spread awareness to dog owners about the importance of canine fitness! I want to be able to reach and help as many dogs as possible, that is my number one mission!​
