Many older dogs experience joint stiffness or arthritis, which causes the muscular system to compensate and
"guard" the painful area. Massage will help to not only combat the secondary muscle soreness, but will also address the joint
stiffness that is the original root of the problem.
Guide dogs, police dogs and any other service animals may all develop chronic physical issues, injuries
or job-related stress. Massage will help to keep them moving comfortably and naturally, prevent injury & reduce stress
Your average family pet can develop physical problems just as easily as a hard-working search and rescue
dog. Some dogs don't get enough exercise to maintain muscle tone. Other dogs may play too rough, fall or land wrong from a
jump. In any case, massage will help to keep your dog in the best shape possible, both physically and mentally.
