Welcome to the National Association of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists

Set up in 2010, we are a not for profit organisation which maintains the List of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists (RCHs) in the UK. NARCH ensures that all RCHs adhere to the highest professional standards and ethics and these requirements are laid out on this website and within the Guide to Professional Conduct for Registered Canine Hydrotherapists.

Transparency is a key element of NARCH. You can check any hydrotherapist on our register and their qualifications, training and continual professional development record. Only hydrotherapy centres that are owned by or employ RCHs are listed on this website. Pet owners, referring veterinary professionals and pet insurance providers can be confident that dogs in the care of an RCH receive the highest standards of treatment.

This website is designed to provide the public and veterinary professionals with advice and guidance on canine hydrotherapy. Please do not hesitate to contact NARCH should your questions not be answered within the site.

To find a Registered Canine Hydrotherapist or Hydrotherapy Centre use the search box on the right hand side of this page. The map below shows all Centres where there are active RCH. Red pins indicate a centre with both pool and treadmill, blue pins indicate centres with just a pool, and pink pins indicate centre with just a treadmill - click on the pin for more information.

Recent news

Following the Prime Minister's address to the Country at 20.30 hrs on 23rd MARCH 2020 in which the Government issued instructions to stop all but essential contact, all NARCH Hydrotherapy Centres should close with immediate effect.
The Prime Minister stated that this is a NATIONAL EMERGENCY.
The measures we are all being asked to put in place are to protect and preserve the health of the Nation - our staff, our clients, the general public, our families, those in high risk category groups and above all our healthcare workers, emergency services personnel and those involved in food production and supply. We need our front line workers to stay healthy so that they can help us.
We must all do our part if we are to slow down and ultimately stop this virus. Please do your part.
