Meet The Therapists
Natasha De Kauwe BA(Hons) Cert HSA, RCH
Natasha De Kauwe is the owner, director and lead hydrotherapist at House of Hydro.
She is passionate about Canine Hydrotherapy and the benefits and results it can achieve.
Natasha believes in allowing the dogs in her care to make their own choices at their own pace. She is committed to enriching a dog’s life by building trust, which in turn allows her and her team to carry out the rehabilitation the dog needs in a kind, caring and relaxed manner.
Natasha qualified as a canine hydrotherapist in 2016. She has since gained her work experience in other hydrotherapy centres before embarking on a journey to open up her own business in 2019. Prior to that Natasha was a regional Human Resource Business Partner, overseeing and supporting many employees.
Having grown up in West London and subsequently worked there, Natasha relocated to Bedfordshire in 2002 with her husband, daughter and much adored moggy; since then a son and two dogs have joined the family.
In her spare time Natasha enjoys relaxing at home with her family and indulging in every whim of her two dogs.
