Beth Williams , P.T., G.C.S., M.A., A.P.T. (owner) has been a licensed physical therapist in Nevada and California since 1985, having graduated with honors from California Statue University Northridge. She is a board certified geriatric clinical specialist, and a certified Aston-Patterning practitioner and Pilates instructor.
Ms. Williams began applying her knowledge of movement science, physical therapy and rehabilitation techniques to animals in 1998, following her own Rottweiler "Nitro's" successful hip reconstruction for severe bilateral hip dysplasia.
...
Over the past 7 years, Ms. Williams has successfully treated treated dogs, cats and horses. In addition to her training as a human physical therapist she has completed continuing education courses on canine and equine anatomy and physical rehabilitation through the American and Canadian Physical Therapy Associations, Wild West Veterinary Conferences, and the first three International Symposiums on Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation in Veterinary Medicine. She is committed to promoting health, improving fitness, and preventing injury for all her clients through appropriate exercise and education.
Looking back, her interest in this field began early in life. As a 10 year old volunteer at a veterinary clinic, she rescued her first dog - a beagle puppy abandoned at the clinic with a broken leg! Animals play a central role in her personal as well as professional life. She and her canine companion Nitro are active members and tester/observers for the local pet facilitated therapy program "Paws for Love", and she participates in agility training with her 2 year old shepherd mix "Dragster". Her home is a foster home for SPCA kittens until they are old enough to be adopted and she volunteers at Washoe County Regional Animal Services to exercise and socialize dogs awaiting new homes. She has been riding horses since age 11, and continues to regularly enjoy the Nevada desert landscape on horseback.
P.J. Wangsness Howle, C.P.D.T., became the first trainer in Nevada to earn a national level I certification from Certification Council for Pet Dog Trainers in 2002. She has been raising and training animals for 24+ years, and in 1999 "quit her corporate day job" to teach people to train their dogs full time as owner of Dog Training by P.J. She shares her home with several Chihuahuas, a Brittany, two cats, several horses and a goat, and continues to train and gentle the occasional horse. An avid student of animal behavior, learning theory and nutrition, she and Beth Williams collaborated in 2003 to create the unique "Fido 'N Me Fitness"classes to benefit both 2 and 4 legged clients. www.dogtrainingbypj.com

Lisa is 13 years old and to hear Beth explain it she should be the poster child for the geriatric generation, just like the Energizer bunny, she keeps going and going. She does swim longer than her two younger buddies and is really never ready to stop. She has some arthritis and the swimming has helped to keep her limber.
Katie is 3 years old and after having her x-rayed last year I found out she has hip dysplasia very slight in her right hip. I just started flyball and agility with her but did quit flyball because of the hard turns. My vet advised to continue the agility just not to overwork her and definitely continue the swimming for mobility. Swimming is a low impact exercise and does not cause pain to her joints.
Jessie my youngest is only 7 months old and joined the swimming crew in September. She was a little reluctant at first but quickly learned to love the water. We laugh at her as every time I through the ball she must stand on her back legs and just dive into the water after the ball. Beth has started to spoil her because when I throw the ball Jessie waits for Beth to go to the opposite side of the pool to throw the ball high in the air so she can jump up and dive for it.

A friend recommended physical therapy, specifically Beth Williams at K9 Wellness Center. At the time we were under a vainly mistaken apprehension of Physical Therapy. We called Beth anyway and were invited to inspect the facilities, which we did. Unwittingly (but now most appreciated) we were invited at a time that was during a therapy session with one of Beth's more dramatic success stories.
...
Beth had an exercise for this and within two weeks Archie was running straight and true.
After about three months Archie no longer required therapy but now continues a conditioning/ maintenance program of exercise on the treadmill and swimming while waiting for the spring thaw to resume agility. Although a relatively minor case compared to some of her patients, from the bottom of his big little heart Archie says "thank you Beth for allowing me to live a happy, normal life."
CHESTER
I met Beth Williams in August 2003 shortly after my dog, Chester, suffered a spinal stroke. The stroke had left Chester, who was 6 years old at the time, paralyzed in his hind legs as well as bowel and bladder incontinent. I had two choices: put Chester down or take him home and see if he could be rehabilitated since other dogs have been able to walk again after similar strokes. I decided to take him home and give him three months to show some signs of improvement. I got a wheel chair, several boxes of diaper pads and, best of all, a referral to Beth. My main goals were to get him to the point where he could walk and regain continence. We started seeing Beth three times a week and, after about two weeks, Chester began to show movement in his tail and his left leg. Beth then began working with him in the small pool where he slowly began to walk and bear some weight on his hind legs. By Christmas time, the wheel chair was gathering dust in the garage
and we were seeing Beth once a week. It has been 1 1/2 years since Beth came into our lives and my initial goals have long since been met. Chester is almost back to the dog he was before the stroke - he runs around, chases his ball, goes with us to the beach where he swins and runs and, two weeks ago, went cross country skiing with me where I skied for 5 km and he ran much farther.
I am doubtful that Chester would have come as far if I'd taken him home and merely let nature "take its course". In fact, without Beth, I probably would have had to put him down. Even now when he gets weak and wobbly, we go see Beth, she works her magic and I return home with a strong and happy dog.

Just ask Beth Williams, a physical therapist, who's putting her burly dog, Nitro, through the paces of her dog stretching program in a vacant room next to Dog Training by P.J. in Reno.
"He's gonna show off for you now," said Williams as Nitro's eyes light up in anticipation of strutting his stuff.
On William's request, Nitro, a 6-year-old Rottweiler, offers up one paw, which Williams dutifully stretches.
...
For Williams, the stretches are the first step to a full-fledged fitness program that also includes strength training and endurance exercises.
...
"There's an epidemic of diabetes and obesity in the human population," Williams said. "And yes, we're seeing it in animals, too."
The similarities don't end there, Williams said. As a physical therapist who works on both humans and dogs, Williams said she's seen her fair share of people and canines limping into her practice with conditions ranging from muscle strain to tendinitis. Even treatment modalities - heat, cold and ultrasound - can be the same for both, she said.
The best scenario, though, is to prevent problems before they even start, Williams said. And when it comes to prevention of many injuries, Williams believes that a good exercise regimen would do the trick for both her two- and four-legged clients.
...
In their six-class program, Williams and Howle start by teaching their students how to properly stretch their dogs through proper motivation.
...
"This dog is not a ballerina," said Williams as she motions toward Nitro. "He's a linebacker.
...
By taking the class, Williams and Howle said they hope owners will learn more about themselves and their dogs so exercising will be more enjoyable and, as such, more effective. Just taking off a few pounds from a person and big dog can make a big difference in reducing joint injuries.
Walking usually puts four times the body weight on joints for both people and dogs. If you take off four pounds, that's similar to taking away 20 pounds of extra stress on those joints, Williams said.
...
Besides fitness, there's also one more extra incentive for learning more things you can do with your dog, Williams added.
"They need a job to do," Williams said.
