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 (RCH) 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 RCHs. Red pins indicate centres with both pool and treadmill, blue pins indicate centres with just a pool and pink pins indicate centres with just a treadmill. Coloured pins with a white dot indicate centres that have an on-site physiotherapist.
