Biography

Lee A. Taylor, was proprietor of Westchester Massage Therapy PLLC and LAT Total Fitness for over 30 years.  The decision to focus entirely on dogs came naturally, as she has done animal rescue her whole life,  fostered hundreds of animals until they found their forever homes, and continues to  help animals in need whenever possible.  She volunteered at a local animal shelter for 9 years training the resident dogs in order for them to get adopted more easily.  


Lee is a Certified Canine Fitness Trainer (CCFT), trained at the University of Tennessee.  The  training consists of a Standardized Canine Fitness Assessment using the (CFP) Canine Fitness Performance (TM) methodology, injury prevention and care, program design and implementation.

Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT)



WHY FITNESS TRAINING

Injuries, Surgeries, and Aging


      All contribute to dogs gettting deconditioned.  I can  work with your vet to address your dogs particular problem(s), if any, and design a program to help make your dog stronger, more confident, and have  more mobility.   Every dog is an individual that has specific needs, and their safety comes first.  Fitness training not only works on the physical aspects of your dog, but the mental as well.  When dogs have to use their brain as well as their body, it tires them out more  than if they do physical exercise alone.  A tired dog is a good dog.
