Our Instructors

Becky Pease

Owner and Certified Instructor, Canine Hydrotherapy

As a competitive swimmer from childhood through college, Becky has been in the pool most of her life. She also grew up as an animal lover, and as the owner of Aqua Therapups, she now has the joy of combining her two passions – swimming and animals. There is nothing that makes Becky happier than motivating dogs as they swim for fun, providing confidence for those learning how to swim and solving post-injury issues that dogs may face during rehabilitation.

Bryan Ossanna

Certified Instructor, Canine Hydrotherapy

Like Becky, Bryan has always had a love for animals. Especially dogs. He began working with Becky in 2011 at her first animal care business, Central Bark Doggy Day Care in Slinger. When Bryan heard about the new ATP business venture, he knew he wanted to be a part of it. When Aqua Therapups first opened, Becky and Bryan only offered fun swims for dogs. It wasn’t until Bryan’s dog, Sidney, was diagnosed with dual CCL tears, that ATP offered therapeutic and rehabilitative swims. The incredible results due to Sydney's therapy was the foundation for the Aqua Therapups we know today.
