About Us
Ava and Cindy

From as early as I remember, I have been crazy in love with animals. I painted the veterinarian's oath on my bedroom walls before I was 10 and was a professional horse trainer by the time I was 19. Starting out in Equine Aquatic Rehab, I always wanted a canine pool but it was my beloved dog, Ava, who finally gave me the opportunity. Click here to read more about how we came to be.

Ava and I built our first pool and opened La Paw Spa in 1996. Business boomed and soon we had outgrown our original facility. In 2004, I expanded my services and am now operating La Paw Spa out of various pools in the NorthWest. Click here to read about availability, locations and how to book an appt.

Committed to the safe practices of Canine Water Therapy, I founded the Association of Canine Water Therapy in 2005. The A.C.W.T. gives web space to members to advertise their services. I can not endorse, warrant, guarantee be responsible or liable for the representations or services provided by the members of the ACWT and I urge all potential customers to be aware and careful when choosing a therapist for their dog. Read my article How to pick a Therapist or Pool to read more about things to consider when chosing a therapist.

I also started an International Training Program for the work. Click here for more information on these exciting new Training Opportunities.

Cindy's love of animals began at an early age.
