Marti Wood - Managing Director & Head Hydrotherapist

Passionate about dogs and their well-being, Marti founded K9 Swim™ as a way of sharing his knowledge and expertise whilst fulfilling his dream of being able to work with dogs.

As well as being a qualified hydrotherapist, Marti possesses incredible handling abilities which allow him to work with dogs of all backgrounds and temperaments.

Favourite Breed: German Shepherd Dog


Leah Montverde - Hydrotherapist / Reception Manager


As a lifelong lover of canines, Leah initially pursued a career in doggy daycare. 

In October 2018 Leah joined the K9 Swim™ and under Marti's watchful tutelage, has become a very accomplished  hydrotherapist. 

Favourite Breed: Shiba Inu


Maxine Wood - Manageress

Maxine is the manageress at K9 Swim™ and deals with the smooth running of the facility. Maxine initially came to help only for the day when K9 Swim™ first opened and has stayed ever since! Don't be fooled by Maxine's cuddly image, she's a rottweiler in labrador's clothing! 

Favourite Breed: No favourites; dogs with a cheeky personality


Steph Maloney - Head Groomer

Steph has been the head groomer at K9 Swim™ since its opening and is very popular with all clients. Steph has one assistant working along side her to give the best possible service to all customers.

Favourite Breed: All breeds


Ciarán McLoughlin - Administrative Assistant / Hydrotherapist 

Ciarán joined the K9 Swim™ family in late 2019 after deciding on a new career path. Having witnessed the benefits of canine hydrotherapy first hand (Ciarán has been a K9 swim™ customer since the early days) he couldn't wait to join the team. 

In his spare time, Ciarán loves to go for walks with his rescue Bulloxer, Chance. 

Favourite Breed: All bull breeds (Too hard to choose!)
