Barrington aquatic gym helps keep canines health and wellness afloat

GREAT BARRINGTON — Although it’s a pretty common saying, and to a certain extent, a belief that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, Alden Beane disagrees.

As a certified canine rehabilitation assistant, Beane has dedicated 18 years of her life to providing dogs and their owners with supportive and preventive care. She offers that care out of her business, True Balance Animal Wellness & The Canine Aquatic Gym.

Located at 34 Rosseter St. in Great Barrington, one of the pillars of Beane’s wellness programming, includes hydrotherapy, which utilizes exercises in a pool as part of treatment for various conditions like arthritis, rheumatism and circulation. Five days a week, Beane is swimming between 35 to 50 dogs in a 10-foot by 18-foot, 5,000-gallon pool. The pool is heated to 89 degrees and features jets for resistance. Sessions are $65 and approximately 45 minutes long. Each session is performed on a one-on-one basis that includes bodywork in the water.
