Who is Viviana Miramar? Well, some of you may know her as Vikkie, and she is the owner of Healthy Hounds. Viviana has been a dog behaviourist, trainer and walker for almost twelve years. Before this, she worked in Blantyre Vets. Over the years she has been on many courses, from Victoria Stillwell’s Training Academy to Animal Communication courses. She is also fully qualified to train up other dog walking businesses and has started up many companies in the South Lanarkshire areas. These include Mutz of Mayhem, Leash of Life, Pooch Paradise and Sunshine Walks. Each business package includes training on running a business alongside a social media platform. Some of the companies are still contracted to Healthy Hounds, such as Leash of Life and Mutz of Mayhem. Viviana welcomes any budding dog walker to get in touch and find out more. All packages come with a dog handling certificate.
Alongside her dog care businesses, Viviana also runs a massage and energy healing. After studying and becoming qualified in physiotherapy, Viviana travelled the globe to put her skills to work. As she visited each country, she learnt new practices from different cultures. Soon she discovered her path was of alternative therapies. But on her return to Scotland, she knew her heart was to the dogs. She still runs a massage parlour but devotes her days to her furry friends. Her ability to communicate with animals and perform energy healing allows her to blend her two passions together.
