“I want to help one million dogs! It’s a bold goal but I’m sure there are even more that need help.”
Kylie Marks of The Doggie Bakery and Strong and Steady Canines was a physio for over 12 years in aged care. She had seen the pain her human patients endure with arthritis and how it can be improved with undertaking a specific exercise program focused on strengthening weak muscles and stretching tight muscles around, or near, the arthritic joint.
When Kylie started to see lots of dogs affected by hip arthritis with her then side business The Doggie Bakery, she couldn’t understand why owners of arthritic dogs would usually be given one or two options – arthritis pain medication and/or the recommendation for a very expensive hip replacement.
Now, at Strong and Steady Canines, Kylie provides hands-on therapy and online exercise programs to allow senior and arthritic dogs to have less pain, move better and live longer.
Arthritis is the second leading cause of elective euthanasia for dogs and Kylie wants to abolish this statistic through education and improved problem solving skills for pet parents.
Kylie says “I want to help one million dogs! It’s a bold goal but I’m sure there are even more that need help. Whether baking natural dog treats or providing physio for dogs, I’m up for the challenge to help dogs be more mobile, have less pain, enjoy more adventures and live longer!”
Over the years, through the HerBusiness Network, Kylie has increased her skills and knowledge of email marketing and social media. Kylie originally joined the HerBusiness Network for just that reason – to increase the knowledge she needed to continually improve her business – but has stayed because of the supportive community.
When not working towards her bold goal to help one million dogs as a dog treat baker and dog physio, Kylie loves to spend time with her family and fur babies (two gorgeous huskies).
